Unedited Poem #10: “Skinny Love.”

on

“Nothing looks as good

       as skinny feels!”

the whole world

       cries, raking

fingernails 

       down their

faces,

       screaming

in one accord.

       I wonder

if they know 

       how ugly it feels

to be valued 

        for how much of you

there is not.
