Me, delicious?


What if

I forget how to breathe

One day my lungs pack up

And I freeze

For longer than a minute

An hour

I die right there

And purple veins decorate marbled blood

Clots of dark, crumble

Hawks hover above

Liquid pink drenches the earth

And twigs played by bones

Settle alone

Waiting for the squirrel to collect

What if

All I knew of myself

When painted lips pout in the morning

As I decide by the light of the mirror

My worth

Was gone in a flash

Ground down to feed the worms

Every inch of me

Nourishes another

So what if

Before I die

I decide to be delicious

Before the hawks and the squirrels and the worms

Enjoy me

I’ll make sure to enjoy myself first
