Elsie at 73 

Here she is, folks. This is Elsie.
This is her body, her breasts,
her arms open wide, and ready to give you the world's most magnificent hug.
Her hug is a big hug.
She does not apologize
for the space it takes up.
There's a lifetime of love
saved up in her, in her body.
Her hug can lift you and shake you
and take you all the way
to a moment of paradise,
to a place where the world
is made out of safety and love.
You may be afraid to go there,
and Elsie can understand why.
She's known her own devastation,
but her arms open wide just the same.
This is Elsie, folks.  Who wants a hug?
