Someone (another blogger, but I won’t say who) mentioned to me at a party the other night that he prefers women’s bodies to have “content” — i.e. to be somewhat voluptuous.

I realized that I don’t think of fat or curves or shape in terms of content but as form.

Of course, we are both wrong:

and if I am loved

as if with a toothy mace

then let it be as thinking form

think of content as material —

IN a glass not air or water

but glass itself, and my white thighs

smoother pastures of resentment

“Yang and Yin”, Foriegnn Bodie
