if when I walk 
on concrete sidewalks 

stop at the bakery window 
full with pastry

covered in chocolate 
and creams 

I notice 
in the reflection 

a new roundness 
to my frame

and I begin  
to worry 

about You
the new medication 
this heaviness 
in my chest 

just keep walking
your parents are diabetic
