Run out of the shower to an empty house
hair soaked and dripping on the hardwood floor
a warm terry towel wrapped underneath your arms
free, clean, beautiful.
run your fingers though the thick, sleek curls of your lions mane
toss it forward & bring it close to your nose
it smells of vanilla mint tea
drop the towel on your bed, no need to be ashamed.
stand in front of the mirror and stare
do a twirl, twist your body side to side, whip your hair,
stick your tounge out, make sexy faces, don’t be shy.
brush you skin with lotion-
long arms, tanned & scarred
long legs, prickly & thick
torso too, pear-shaped and absolutely beautiful.
