Make Peace with Your Proportions

Make peace with your proportions –
top-heavy head, enormous feet
that make you lumber down the street.

Dye your hair gray-lavender --
paint your loafers powder pink.

You’re more extravagantly marvelous
than you have thought to think.

Honor your ungainliness –
this awkward form which won’t desist –
without which you would not exist.
