I didn't even know myself.
All year I shopped for clothes
That didn't fit – sizes I thought I was.

I bought large shirts and sweaters and jackets.
Picked out pants the wrong cut.
My britches were too big for me.

I wore clothes that didn't fit.
Like hand-me-downs from
My much bigger brother.

Until recently I didn't know my legs.
Or what my waist was.
I didn't know whose body I had.

This year I'm more aware. 
Of what to wear!
I've finally figured out what I am – a medium.
