As a young girl I wore a yellow bikini
body straight and thin our neighbor
Charles Currano said: Esther you
look like a number 2 pencil. He was right.
Two fuchsia bikinis in a row. The first was skimpy.
The second a little bit more modest.
Then when my body became
another body, still mine but body parts
in other places, I wore one piece
bathing suits called tanks.
A few weeks ago a woman
named Mickey, 83, in Sarasota, she
came to the pool in her bright red
beautiful two piece. Her real body
looked good. Where’s yours she asked?
I have one now.
