By Laurie Avocado
I have to admit there are times when I am in love with my own body.
This is the body I was meant to be.
These pictures, spread before me, could be me.
I touch the wet place,
Wishing I could feel this soft flesh,
To be enveloped by you
You who are so much like me
A mirror of touch
(not that brittle image-giving surface of cold glass)
A mirror of my flesh, my touch,
A world of me.
