Fat and Skinny.Being thin has become a bad thing.
Fat is now in.
Calling someone a skinny twig is something you can get away with.
Calling someone a fat lump is something you can't.
A girl at school asked if I was anorexic once.
Asked where were my womanly bumps?
A boy at college snidely remarked,
I don’t fancy her. I’d snap her in half.
I realise I look quite thin,
But I like to run and ride and win.
Veg and fruit taste good to my tongue,
A sour of lime, a slice of melon.
I’m a healthy weight,
But that doesn’t seem enough.
The feedback so far calls for change.
A little bit of weight gain?
Perhaps I should pile my plate high
With fat disguised as food, it coats my tongue in lard
It slips down my throat like eels.
Oil, grease, fat, plump, expand, grow, put on fat.
All this leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Is there a correct weight?
I’m striving for it.
Forcing nasty food down my gullet.
My hips expand with
pork pies, pastries, sausage rolls,
I put weight on by the bucket
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
