growth chart: within the norm
head circumference: average height male-equal
self-growth: out for starvation
eat up yourself
fill identity’s void
cheat on your self
you’d better conform
to your relations and your nations
it’s all about
maturity rate: off the charts
biological aging: per nature’s request
self-confidence: enough to value risks
becoming the woman-self: priceless!

Pulled at to read your ‘necessary losses’ again, also has the feel of one’s pulse for a heartbeat, the rhythm is such, as the words speak of life from right now to the eventual end. Its semi abstraction me forcibly read the fourth strophe, as ” eat yourself up” , the power of the piece being that compelling.
It really is an exceptional!

You probably know what I am about to tell you, my dear poet friend, Jean-Jacques: For you to have read my poem more than once is a generosity I will never take for granted, generosity of precious time but also of utmost valuable deliberation. My best wishes are with you, as always.
yes . . . . love it . . . speaks volumes . . . nice “check list”, i need to do one 🙂
Thank you, dear One. Knowing your incredible poetic power, your loving of my poem means much to me. (As for the checklist, you will do one when/if you are so inclined, no? And not because you “need to do one”. Smiles . . .)
I love it… It has the feel of one size fits all, and the option of a reversible covering.
I wholeheartedly welcome each of your visits here, dear friend, Jean-Jacques. Once again, I am amazed in the fact that you saw/see through the facade of my poem right into its authorial intent.
