Cellulite

turning so slowly
in front of mirrors,
miniscule motions
terrify.
bodies resist deployment,
mostly, through forcing
thighs to grind gingerly,
exposing flaws
marbleizing into age
(a moment of horror).
flesh procures moments
of self-destruction,
even self-hatred,
not stopped by willpower
entirely,
but beach towels might help
as hot-toed march
to ocean begins.
not jiggling seems
to help poised swollen breasts,
yet legs reveal
decrepitude, ineptitude,
those invisible eyes
of strangers
not impressed.

Wow, I am impressed, Larry! This is a superb composition with great, compassionate images and a feeling of understanding the self-disgust of aging or body flaws. And the ending! Too sublime! One of the best I've seen of yours! :)
