The Hermit Crab/Poets United/prompt: The Body
The Hermit Crab
the body i live in the shell that surrounds me the keeper of my heart
yes… it has changed but what hasn’t the baby fat of my cheeks
no longer so my hair no longer thick or dark
shines silver in the moonlight some of my teeth are gone my chin reaches for my chest
my breasts slip toward my belly my waist expanded
along with my hips and my skin is no longer full …still i am here
just like the house i live in there are cracks in the walls some things need to be replaced
i call it home and like my body i am comfortable here
no one expects to remain like the shiny new car on the lot
if death doesn’t come first i will grow old in my once young body
