24: on giving up bread or on listening / by LaQuann Dawson

his 13 year old body
told him to stop eating
sweets and fried food

his 14 year old body
told him to run so
he runs and    runs     and         runs        and             r u n s

internet boys
told him he shouldn't pudge
when he sits down

his head
told his stomach
to shut the fuck up

humor
told his momma
he rather take a pill

his wallet
told him
dollar pizza it is    again

blood
told the doctor
340 mg/dl

shock
told him
to weep

the nurse
told him
at least it’s not cancer

his Gay
told him
at least its not aids

parenthesis
told him
yet
