Wet bedding can be heavy enough to rip
The speaker is accused of seeking closeness
a shoulder out of its socket
Momma was tough enough to take it on the chin
Though male figures are rare
and full enough to feed a family
they tend to be characterized by an attribute or activity

What’s sexy is reckless syntax
Characterized by particularly full legs and buttocks
Her guts are jewels
undoubtedly indicative of fertility
Keeping that secret could feel good

Here   in their madness
Baby’s belly rumble bottoms out
they have unpinned their clothes and stand partly naked
He rolled like a whistle downhill   east
A door left partly open is seen by the speaker as an invitation
