The Radical Portion

There is nothing radical

About self love, the only thing

Radical about love

Is doing it

When it’s illegal, or banned, or

Socially frowned upon.

Queer love is radical,

Trans love is radical,

Interracial love is radical,

Nowadays, in 2021

Loving your body without having

A checklist for improvements

Is considered a radical way of life–

Why is it that body love

Is considered

“Too radical”

“Dangerous”

Why is

Body positivity considered to be

Such a radical movement–

A radical politic?

More extreme than

Any of the other stances?

When will it be time to recognize

That fat people are not included

In civil rights, and nobody blames

Anyone for it besides

The fat bodies who already bear

The radical portion
