Zero is not a size.

Zero is a lack of size,
a wafer-thin waist
where your organs
should be.

Zero should be the number
of girls that hate
the width of their hips.

But I live in a world
where zero is a size,
and nothing is valued
less
than substance.
Maybe I should have titled this Vanity Sizing for a bit of variety?

Vanity sizing is why it's so hard for me to find comfortable pants :grump:

Yes, yes, YES.
Women's bodies do not exist on a sliding scale, and size is not golf, with the lowest number winning. Arbitrary numerical sizes are ridiculous, even without the nonsensical existence of a "size 0." Men's clothing makes so much more sense. My waist is X inches, my hips are Y inches, and my inseam is Z inches. Presto. Clothes that actually fit.

I know; I'm so jealous of men's sizing. I have the worst time trying to find pants that A) fit and B) are comfortable. My pant size is anywhere from 18 to 24 depending on the brand. And don't get me started on all the "skinny," "low-fit," "high-rise," "boot cut," and whatever other BS is on the tags.

Gorgeous poem <33 

asdfghjkl I happen to be very very tiny
i've gotten innocent comments a lot about it..that in reality hurt
just as you wouldn't call someone fat, you shouldn't call people skinny

Thank you :heart:

My parents tried that thing where they fed me nothing but vegetables and thought I would eat it eventually when I was hungry enough; this was when I was seven-ish. When we went to visit my Mimi in Virgina, she didn't recognize me cause I was so skinny :XD:

"and nothing is valued

That makes such a statement.

It's interesting because I could have put "more" there and simultaneously had the same and complete opposite meaning. I agonized over which to use :XD:

Well I definitely think you made the right choice! I think the way you have it makes it much more impactful, personally.

I'm short and proud of it :)
Makes me the best at hide&seek!  And dodgeball - the dodging part.
