Trigger warning: mention of disordered eating.

Vi Eating Dinner

She loves food,
smacking her lips
as she mmm mmm yumyumyumyumyummmms
through the bowl of veggies,
tofu and rice
enjoying her way to the bottom of the bowl,
and the sticky sweet promise of dessert.
I hope she never loses
this rampant joy,
never thinks
are there too many calories in this?
will this dish make me fat(ter)(test)?
I am such a fat monster for eating this.
I need to vomit/purge/have another laxative.
never says
No, thanks, that has way too many carbs.
I’ll have a Diet _____.
Let her mmm her way through adolescence
into adulthood.
Let her always know
the bliss
the necessity
of food.
