Ashley Graham

The morphological madness
Of anorexia has now been quelled,
As Ashley Graham and plus sized
Models are running the catwalks
So elegantly, as if, Renoir’s brushstrokes
Are turning to real life; the once taut bodies
Jumping out in to a thin fuzz
Of cellulite, which to the naked eye, appears
Almost like the froth of skin-gauze;
Demanding the same respect
As Kate Moss’s rib cage.
