The Snake In The Kitchen by Joel F –   https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

Tasting but not eating
sipping yet not drinking

Following the reading
of the book about slimming

Calorie counting
fallacies digesting

Swallowing pills
intoxicating chills

A Lying Mirror
lo’ and behold

Litany of lies
being told

The bulging hips
The sagging belly

Get those pills
and don’t leave any

Self esteem
that is diving

in a pool
that is conniving

Opening
the locked basket

scary casket
of pandora’s trinkets

Smitten and bitten
by the snake in the kitchen.
