She draws them on
Her hands
Her beautiful hands
She draws them on
her legs
Her lovely legs
She draws them all over
her body
Her beautiful body
They watch her
They tell her
You’re too fat
Don’t wear that
They tell her to
dye her hair
Her lovely hair
That color
Do this
And you’ll be in
You’ll be one
of them.
She eats what they tell her
A fourth bagel
A half salad
No dressing
An energy bar
Nothing else
Now they say
Barf it up
She does
This goes on
She changes
no one
recognizes her
