skip dinner wake up thinner
skip dinner
wake up and
your hair is thinner
you’re cold even though you’re wrapped in
six blankets and
two sweatshirts
skip breakfast and
maybe you’ll weigh a little less but
you won’t be able to think and
the white fuzz on your arms grows a little longer and
you’re tired but you
skip lunch
because it’s better beat nature to the punch
killing yourself before it kills you
you skip dinner again
but it’s okay because you’ll wake up thinner
but that night you
are in bed trying to sleep just a little but
you can’t because you ache to the very bones
that you want to see so badly
and you realize that maybe it isn’t worth it
to shrink because this is
too much to bear
and you don’t want to keep
losing your hair
