POETRY: In Praise of Large Women

Photo lifted here.

In Praise of Large Women

Helen May Padway

I love a large woman

with generous hips and size D cups

a female not afraid of dresses that cling

or shorts

tank tops that show

the upper arm jiggle

and pyramid thighs

connected to deep-dimple knees.

Not the timid trying to shrink

into a tent of anonymity

my affair is with a Juno who stands

in front of the mirror and enjoys her image

in patterns and colors big and bold.

She may corset and cosset

for special occasions—but in the bedroom

I imagine husband or lover

drowning in her pool of amplitude

nuzzling nipples and

covered by waves of loving flesh.
