Fat Is Not a Fairy Tale
Jane Yolen

I am thinking of a fairy tale,
Cinder Elephant, //www.janeyolen.com/shrtsample.html
Sleeping Tubby, //www.imdb.com/title/tt0053285/
Snow Weight,//extension.missouri.edu/publications/DisplayPub.aspx?P=G7391
where the princess is not
anorexic, wasp-waisted, //www.helpguide.org/mental/anorexia_signs_symptoms_causes_treatment.htm
flinging herself down the stairs.

I am thinking of a fairy tale,
Hansel and Great,
Bounty and the Beast,
where the beauty
has a pillowed breast,
and fingers plump as sausage.

I am thinking of a fairy tale
that is not yet written,
for a teller not yet born,
for a listener not yet conceived,
for a world not yet won,
where everything round is good:
the sun, wheels, cookies, and the princess. //www.christopherscookieclassics.com/classicselections.htm?gclid=COWSnOmu0JoCFRJ4xgodwUr0mA
