9:00 A.M. Visit To An Anorexia Ward.


9:00 a.m. visit to a Anorexia ward.

Here sit
unbalanced girls
so thin
they make
angel hair pasta
look pregnant.
Hollow eyes
that see calories
even in the dust
that floats around them.
Fed intravenously
lips pressed
tightly together,
a clamp against
the spoon!
the fork!
The horror!!
Pain pounds them
pounds pain them.
They wither
like early crocuses
beneath the weight
of forced March snows.
Bones jutting against
palest flesh
long before they're buried,
as they wait
for the fat lady
to stop  
singing her song.
