body beautiful

most nights he falls asleep before me

and when he does he can sleep hard

uncovered in bed naked

and while he would not approve while awake

I admire his stomach on occasion

smooth pale expanse ripely rounded

rising and falling beneath the weight of my hand

he is solid and he is real

and while he may wish for washboards

as he had so long ago

I love the whole of him now

because he is beautiful

all of him
