Report on My Body

I’m blessed with moles                

and prone to polyps,      

my heart has a hypertrophic wall,            

born with no right ovary                               

but a generous uterus,                 

myopic,               

never cavity prone,        

taller than average, not too hairy

with three warts and one fungus toe,

a poet once told me

I had lovely limbs

before she absconded to Germany.
