Elastic Resolve

— Bonnie George

 
A scale of sorts, my elastic waistband weighs my mood

Result is like heavy, cumbersome time, stretching to encompass

Tense self-torture, lack of control

While longing for release… or at least a little relaxation

 
I’ll take my flabby thoughts on holiday

And run along the seashore, toning muscles for

Skinny-dipping, skinny looking… skinny something

 
Oh yes, my resolutions have skinny

Sandwiched

Between health food and quality of life

 
Snap to… O’ Expanded One… snap to!

One thought on “Elastic Resolve

  1. all right bonnie. it’s a good thing i like skinny reading and snappy poems.
