Some Parisian women are slender

like you picture when you think of them sashaying their stilettos down Parisian streets

but not all of them are.

Many of them are streaked and marbled with

soft and airy fat

which they carry effortlessly abreast their hips

Across their stomachs

in their chests

and straddling their thighs.

It is a fat that looks sweet-tasting,

a fat made of converted croissants and cream sauces.

They don’t carry their fat with shame or embarrassment,

they don’t attempt to tuck and hide it away

but rather let it float around their bodies like Chanel Number 5

because they know it is beautiful.
