Clothes Hanger



Regard the female model:
wire hanger for clothes.
"Skinny"
a thing to coddle.
"Curved"
a thing for loathes.

Regard the female model:
anorexic straight frames.

a thing to swaddle.
"Ampled"
a thing for shames.

Regard the female model:
voluptuous as all sticks.
"Scrawny"
a thing to twaddle.
"Fleshed"
a thing for nicks.
