**trigger warning,  ED**

I once knew a girl 
Who became a snake 
Once every 30 days. 
She first experienced this 
Dreaded phenomenon 
Around age 13. 
I knew a girl 
Who fell into a state of possession 
Once every 21 days 
And it was after leaving this state,  
One night, unexpectedly 
She told me 
Possession was her one true act 
Of free will.  

I know a girl 
Who starved 
Until she couldn’t move,
Her fingernails came off
Until her teeth grew soft 
She kept and made 
Small nests beside her bed 
From her own hair
Until she turned to a 
Weightless blameless statue
