Women and Beauty – Senryu/Kyoka – August 3, 2015

Black Teeth During the Heian Period of Japan

beautiful smile
laughing at modernity
black teeth

women’s beauty
lotus feet and black teeth
white painted ladies
in the English court
our anorexic sixties

    • Lot’s of girls experimented with induced anorexia I think when Twiggy came out … from the soft curves of Marilyn Monroe and Lollobrigida to the stick figure in one summer .. and they’re still pushing skinny in pretty btw. Sorry though about your Mom .. mine was an overweight kid and we think she went through bulimia in order to get her weight down … one of the sounds I remember as a kid .. Mom going to the chuck-up dinner.
