i'm finding it harder and
harder
to eat. 

maybe i'm fed up
with winter,
and the snow is clogging my
arteries as i try to
swallow. 
for me, substance as become
nauseating and sends me plummeting 
into a hole
of desperation. 

i am clawing 
at my skin and punching 
my thighs, because
i read somewhere that human 
contact makes us
hungry. i think 
what they really meant is that
we need the touch
of another,
or else we will
starve. 
(baby, i'm already
half way there- hands off
the merchandise.)

maybe i'm guilty.
i read a lot 
about nutrition, and how
nobody ever does it right,
and how kids are starving
while others are
obese, and maybe that
scares me. 

my dad tells me that
i look sick,
but i never tell him
that all i do is sleep 
and it's been days
since i've had a decent meal. 
instead i'm inhaling
smoke and
stars, and i've realized
that i can usually eat
when i'm higher than the moon.

i think that i'm brea ki    n


                                                                            g,
slowly but surly. 
there has got to be more to me
than dry hands and
tired eyes, 
in the end.
i don't know what's going on, and i don't know how to fix it.
