love at the physio



not a diamond ad

no softfocus frolicking on a beach

pert breasts or corrugated abs


she’s cardigan

socks and broken

blood vessels


love leads her out patiently

cheers with a joke

guides her fat bum to passenger seat


love lifts her legs

one at a time by fat ankles

buckles up


love drives her home
