Hairy Legs (Poem)

A poem about self-confidence and the subconscious. Originally published by Seizure on 10 December 2014. Online here.

Hairy Legs

I dreamed I had hairy legs
not hairy how my legs are
(Plain ole hairy)
but REALLY hairy

tight dark curls
like thick scrubbing wire
no sign of skin at all
until my ankles

the kind of hair
that makes people stare
and go URGH
that guy’s SO HAIRY

I felt self-conscious
they’re looking at me
I’m standing out
they’re too hairy

but then fuck it I thought
this is my dream
my hairy legs

and if you don’t like it
(I said to my subconscious)
well, I don’t really care

Spread the love
