free size

is free up to a point

why is it called ‘free’ size

when it excludes everyone

bigger than a large

artisanal stores don’t cater for

bigger than a large

you would need to shop

at a chain store if you are

bigger than a large

unless you visit a store

specifically for those who are

bigger than a large

and if you visit an indian wear store

the indian aunty shop assistant

regards you with disdain

“sorry this will not fit you

but here is the section for the big”

to all those involved in making us who are

bigger than a large

feel less than

sometimes inadvertently

know that we are proud to be

bigger than a large

we are worthy

we are beautiful
