but today she is numb
so she starves...

Egyptians Sideways
The Egyptians walked sideways I figure to conceal the fine points of their figure. In a desperate scrimmage with their own body image diet mania they would prefigure.

Anorexia the Impostor
Calculating and cruel
It poses as your friend
Offering comfort 
A sense of achievement.

It isolates 
Jealously guarding the relationship
Until it infiltrates 
Every cell of your being
And claims you 
As its own.

Rythmn of the Beat
Listening to the rhythm of the beat 
I move my feet the speakers 
Blowing loud every time we meet
When i speak it seems like 
My flow is so sick i can't eat
Anorexia dementia from my lack of similac
Crack back to snap back i bounce back 
Then sit down fall back an relax

The smell sprays spreading
Of delicious food
From a palace above
In a poor hut bellow
Smoke of boiling water
Potatoes for hunger

Servants chivvy    
Serving variety of tastes  
Empty plates wait
Impatient children yawn
Sound waves of two cries prang together 
One for hunger 
One for objection

Self Reflection, for an Anorexic
Self Reflection
by Michael R. Burch

(for anyone struggling with self-image)

She has a comely form
and a smile that brightens her dorm . . .
but she’s grossly unthin
when seen from within;
soon a grieving campus will mourn.

Yet she’d never once criticize
a friend for the size of her thighs.
Do unto others—
sisters and brothers?
Yes, but also ourselves, likewise....

walking in rain
walking in rain:

the wind
is quiet in trees.

a sixth sense
guides me.

a rustle of wings
and a tangle

of vines and leaves.
hipsters with

spiritual anorexia 
block crumbling sidewalks.

i am tuned
to the earth’s music

and voiceless ground.
fantasies like glass

bubble to consciousness.
small sharp rocks.

colors are like
vibrant crayons.

wet grass....

Premium Member Sassy Pot-ish Non-Chic
I weigh two six and twenty-tons today
Fat in unforeseen directions, 
I make cars cringe, when I frolic and play
And I welcome no corrections.

Mighty fine in my well-endowed blubber,
Sassy pot-like, in my non-chic.
Whale-ish me, trice big as my mother.
Loud and proud, forgiveness don’t seek,

I have earned this fat, every little bit.
Come by and see me, if you have true grit.

tHe siLeNt cRiEs oF aNorExiA .
my stomache burns 
i do not want to eat 
he says i shouldnt
i agree 
he stairs with disgust
i look away with shame 
after every meal 
i run to that bathroom 
..i gag myself
letting out all my anger
all my frustration
..all my hurt 
i walk out with a smile 
a smile ,hiding pain
hiding bruises
this is too much 
..for me
he finds pleasure in my pain
pleasure in my tears my silent cries
