yo yo women

there at the Docs’

he asked me to stand on the scale

we noticed I’d got my summer weight

just a bit lower than when winter comes

you don’t weigh yourself at home?

I grew up with yo yo women I tell him

where scales were a source of shame

they’d go on diets off diets starve binge

& I took in all this their great unhappiness

& determined never ever to be the same

so no
