The difference between extreme dieting
And starving 
Is an audience.  

This will hurt, the radio says 
You’re 30 now, the radio says
31,  I answer. 
This will hurt 

You want a pudding 
Made from a cow’s 
First milk after calving
You dream about 
Eating with people 
On the phone 
My sister says
“It’s awful. I can’t keep anything down” 
 Her baby comes in December. 

This will Hurt. 
But getting better 
Is to eat. 
And eating is so many meals.
