Levitation by Illumination
Ninety-seven pounds and a stitched mouth…
I feel so heavy. I tried not to eat today.
Two waffles (without syrup) for breakfast,
a raspberry white chocolate scone for lunch.
A bowl of potato salad to hide the suspicion.
An M&M; cookie to munch on.
However, I don’t believe that this is the kind of heaviness
that cutting my calories can fix,
for it is my thoughts that are weighing me down.
A few glasses of wine might make me feel a little lighter.
And, on the contrary, perhaps shattering
a few light bulbs might make things a bit brighter.
