My friend wants stapling
My friend wants stapling
Even though she mentioned the health benefits, I was so deeply saddened by my friend's decision (not hastily made, of course) to have gastric by-pass.
Oh, she has been desperate so long, she said, to have the body she never had.
I can't do anything to convince her how beautiful she already is. She has such smokey eyes that burn with fierce passion -- for me, for life, for her work. And her pouty lips. GAWD!!! How can anyone resist the words that come from those lips, or their touch on their own.
What she thinks is a belly too large, is smoothest skin, and in moonlight, a warm, velvety field of magnetic energy, glowing like the skies when the Aurora makes its spectral appearance.
Her breasts, her smooth bottom, her garden of love.... and lots of other things I would love to gush on, but she would be embarrassed to see written here.
I tried to tell her. There are more than one "type" of body. Only one stinking type can wear a speedo. But can you imagine what *I* would look like in a speedo!
Yet am *I* unattractive? I'm sure there are people who think so. Have to be. But I'm too busy with all those who think I *am* good looking, and do want to be with me, and appreciate these two massive arms, the masculine warmth of this big chest, my capacity to envelop them, surround them, with a loving intimacy all people need, and most people desperately long for.
I have that. I am that. What would I change just to wear a speedo in a magazine? Poor little guy, wearing his little piece of cloth.
Oh, I'll hug him, too. C'mere, scrawny centerfold guy.
Now, don't you wish you could hug someone the way I just squished you?
Walt Whitman, were he alive, would shake his finger at us. "You people... You people... look around you. Learn to appreciate! Learn how many shapes and forms and shades beauty takes. Stop your unnecessary limitation, restriction. Take off your blindfolds. Let your hands explore. Let your lips map the landscapes of the body!"
It's ALL good!
But, she says, she will be more comfortable, more healthy, and will be here for her children. *This* is laudable. This is good.
But she'll still be beautiful either way.
