belly (second reflection)

my belly is never good enough

sometimes

feel its soft largesse
full of carbs

see its depressed

button
memory of my
birth my connection to
mom
severed
and
against all the cultural
phlegm caught in the
throat
i realize it will never be
what me or anyone
else want it to
be
and
begin to
treasure it
my belly
and button
too
