belly (second reflection)

my belly is never good enough
sometimes


feel its soft largesse
full of carbs

see its depressed
button

memory of my 
birth my connection to
mom

severed
and

against all the cultural
phlegm caught in the
throat

i realize it will never be
what me or anyone
else want it to
be

and
begin to 
treasure it

my belly
and button
too
