Full Coverage: A Savvy Poem


Cover me up, he says

Nothing short, nothing cropped, and nothing tight.


Wanting to please, and wanting to cover up, to reserve myself – just for him,

I buy it big and wear it baggy.


Hold it in, he says.

I told you, didn’t I? I told you not to show; to show – nothing.


See the men – see them looking.

See them looking up the gap, see them seeing your boobs, up the gap of your bagginess.


I see. I see the men all bent up – all bent up and looking up. All looking up the gap of my

own bagginess.


All admiring my beauty.


Being about as beautiful as a bag lady can be, I bag him up and sling him.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
