Connotation

(Inspired by Pensive or Thoughtful Mood a 1939 sculpture by Stella Elkins Tyler)

_____________________________________

Rubenesque a negative

Willowy a positive

Zaftig to avoid

Slender to attain

Chubby a dislike

Skinny a desire

Stout to loathe

Svelte to long

Why do these words dictate decisions and self-worth

When they say nothing about inner beauty and character?
