In Shape (National Poetry Writing Month 2016 #25)   Leave a comment

I’m changing
From obtuse to acute
From oblong to compound
From portly to pugilist

Shedding pounds from
my body,
my mind,
my life,
I stand on the scale.

I am less of a man
Than I was at the start;
I’m much better for it.

– Shaman Romney 2016
