The Diet

Doctor, can you help me shed this weight?
Oprah says it’s all the feelings I ate
But it might be the opposite
I didn’t
Digest it all

I heard my voice the other day
Played back to me
It played so different from what I’d hoped
It was crushed under a house
Reaching out
As if
It knew it had a chance


If I open my throat out a little more
Sound out
Round out the words a little more
Maybe I will hear myself
And feel my weight
Instead of eating these things to remind me
I am here
I exist

I am heavy

click them heels, you wicked thing, we know you're in there
