Poetry of the Soul

Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. ~Thomas Gray

Jogging April 20, 2010

Filed under: poetry — laurenmichelleotheim @ 10:43 pm

the skin of her thighs billowing behind her

undulating, up down, up down, up, down

One foot forward,  mechanically

in total opposition of the gracefully flowing

fat cells unseen in polite society
