i see the perverted men
watching for
waists under 28 inches
and hips far larger
fitting perfectly in
summery bikinis
but not too perfectly
for if it doesn’t fit the girl
they might get a peek

i hope the rain 
from my tears
ruins their objectification
makes it no longer a topic of 
their mindless conversations
that their gaze looks elsewhere
like the wet poolside
the divers on the board
or their children splashing around
