Day 24: Sitting position at 32 years

I never thought of myself before
as round
but always sucked in my gut.
Now I don't have the energy
or the care
to suck it in
and don't have the metabolism
to keep from growing outward
from my center.

But when I'm forced to select
my body type
from the following shapes:
triangle, circle, rectangle or hourglass—
really? I have to say circle to be completely honest
because here in my middle
both back and front
I am round
getting thicker
feeling rolls
I've never felt before.
