No More Body Positivity, No More Body Negativity, No More Body At All, Thanks (bye)

a poem and a bit of sass

In one era,
I hated my body.
I learned to hate my body
from a mother who nitpicked
at everything about my growing
adolescent body,
and a father who made jokes
and when asked to stop,
laughed along and said
“it’s just a joke,
what’s wrong
with being happy?”
