Too Much to Munch
I’ve eaten till my teeth went numb.
I chewed. I gulped. I ate.
I’ve finished every drip and crumb
remaining on the plate.
My guts are sore from all the chow.
My innards cramp and ache.
I munched so much. Too much, and now
my belly starts to quake.
“Just one last bite,” I said all night.
I ate until I hurt.
But since you asked, to be polite,
yes please, I’ll have dessert.
