Big Girl Panties

stuck wearing my
my big girl panties
sensible, clean cotton white,
making the best
of where I’m at;
sadly, it’s just
not a comfortable fit;
way too tight
and boa constricting,
bursting at the seams;
elastic stretched too far
trying to break out
wild and fancy free
the way Mother Nature
intended me to fly.


My humble offering for G-Man’s Friday Flash 55. ┬áSadly, I find myself in a place that just doesn’t seem to fit, but I’m making the best poetry possible out of the situation.
