Welcome To The Bitchery
Welcome To The Bitchery

You, big lady, were the only Disney character who ever looked like me.

And while you may not have had the waistline of a princess,

I'll be god-damned if you didn't have the rolling swagger of a queen.

You made back fat look fucking sexy.

You made living in this body feel a little less like a curse.

I don't want you cut down into bite-sized pieces,

You weren't easy to swallow for a reason.

(the above are just some highlights...the whole thing is great)

ETA: the poet, Melissa May, has a book coming out soon that includes this piece, and it's called Sparklefat. I know what's going on my birthday wishlist.
