Something Gotta Give

Middle aged belly fat
fills me with confusion
and contradiction

I take simple joy in
how my mug of coffee
rests on the roll of firm jelly
grieving over
my youthful shapely body
no more

I guess
you can always
learn to live with
the compromise
between comfort
and sex appeal

  1. You are so funny Cassa. This made me giggle and yet there really isn’t anything funny about having a roll of belly fat. Last year in order to get rid of my little roll I went on a diet called the seventeen day diet. We already eat lots of fruits and vegetables but no carbs at all. I did this and lost fifteen pounds and had finally gotten rid of my little belly but I was also a size two. I felt so much sexier around my husband. Since COVID I have my little friend back. I am frustrated but my husband thanks I am sexy and truth is a have a sweet tooth that is out of this world. So maybe I should just be grateful. That belly fat is a tough nut to crack.
    Have an amazing day Cassa. Sending you love.
