her, there

fat, dark-skinned woman
in skin-tight shorts—

swells of skin curving
not pale, flat
boasting space between knees.

can you think:
her
there
beautiful?

maybe you can,
during doors-closed, lights-off
swells of skin, cushioning

maybe you can,
after pausing, pitying
gosh, big women with their big mouths and big, big personalities
how they make us laugh

maybe she is
boisterous
maybe she is
yearning to cushion

or wants soft lips, warm hands
thinks herself people-shy
where heat, only heat
could outweigh
her unwillingness
to be seen.

but you do
see her. because she’s
fat
because she’s
dark
because she’s in skin-tight shorts.
