Swedes grow skinny like trees or round like bushes. Little sister was a bush.
For a long time she desired to be svelte like a tree and thought,
I'll buy me a neck
and collar bones to go with it
a discernible waist
and daylight between my knees-a first
to go with my oval face
dainty nose - slightly crooked
tacked up tits-Goodbye Army issue bra.
lopped off belly
and soft manicured hands
so I can shop at Victoria's Secret
wear chiffon and boar
that red silk bat-winged dress I always wanted
and dancing slippers
so I can play with Mr. Right
And she did, proof a bush can become a tree.
