Curves Add Character

She draws big bottomed women
in a class of fifteen.
She says that
curves add character.

I can’t draw, but my hand can trace
the curve of her back.
Lying in my arms I see
that she has character.

She drew my face on a kitchen pot.
When I asked her why
she said, you know
that curves add character.
