Yuji Baba


skin


This smiley little skeleton
Doesn’t eat to fill her day
She sits and waits at home, alone
Beaming as she wastes away

This emaciated little doll
Is happier when thin
She sits and eats at home, alone
Crying as she scars her skin

200 calories today
You really overate
She punches herself at home, alone
Crying out her hate

Exercises until she faints
She crumbles on the floor
She sits at home and dies alone
A casualty of hate no more

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
