My object of desire
encloses a fatal number
which will surely lead me to my destruction.
How can you be though of as just food? As fuel?

I hold food in my hands
and am mesmerised at how almost as soon as it is gone
it will be a part of me.

Moments ago you were despised.
Now she can't get enough of you.
It is as though she'd never tasted food before.

One by one the little soldiers march their way
in her mouth
down her throat
in her stomach
onto her arms
which lash out
at the food on her plate.

Neither tasting nor feeling
she desperately chucks the food back,
afraid it'll disappear before she has a chance to devour it.

Just as easily as the food went down,
it slithers its way back up
with screams condemning her for her sins
which lead it down this path.
Author's Notes:
This is the second piece i've written. My friend Rosie got the idea from Wallace Stevens "Thirteen ways of looking at a blackbird" except this one is about food

Verse iv is my favourite by far.

You have a way with words I admire.
