July 12th, 2010

i am currently "starving", i say
and you say, "you don't know what that means"

and i say "how did you do this, when you were little"
and you tell me, "i didn't know anything different"

and i realize that is the problem with dieting:
as with language,
children are so much better
at learning to go
than fat adults who've always had
everything handed to them
on a platter
lightly salted
and greased to go down easy
