Not bad for a fat girl


Ode to Swollen Feet

I have indulged in something so sodium laden you had not choice but to react

I have stressed you beyond your limit

I didn’t realize it at first

Havaianas-Slim-Flip-Flops-Black-300x300But slowly, surely, you expanded bit by bit

Strange, you don’t normally look like puffy skin pillows with pink painted nubs at the ends

But there you are

Two gigantically swollen feet stuck to the ends of my legs, squeezed into flip flops because no other shoes will accommodate you

I have a secret fear that your skin is stretched so taut it will split under the slightest pressure

I take full responsibility for your pitiful condition

I’m sorry
