Drinking: Diet Dr. Pepper
Fear lends you size
You believe yourself LARGE.
Too large to fit
in a world of streamlined thighs
and scalpel highlights.
The possibilities of your proportions
So you try to make yourself
As if you take up too much space
that could be more successfully occupied
by someone more meaningful
But even when high school waistbands

you are not satisfied.
Mind over mirror.
You could always be thinner.
-Lo, who doesn’t believe in scales.
