How many poems were written about you

Since I grew breasts
approximately three men
(and a woman)
have written approximately
eighteen poems about me.
Of these, at least ten were
a shambolic attempt to claim
ownership. To catch the potential
boiling inside me and make it small
for their trinket boxes.
Of these, only one apologetic
and blushing attempt was genuine.
Made for me and not to boast.
That is the poem I like the most.
