STARVING IN YOUR 20’S by IGGY ODDITY

Born in August, 

Teething on starfulness

Like any fire doomed 

To be put out.

Now, hunger;

Starvation circles me as

An army.

My only wish:

To look into the sun without blindly 

Suffering the consequences.

To cost myself for a moment 

Of radiance. 

How funny, 

That I am considered in my prime. 

Desirability left up to variables 

Not even I am aware of. 

My hunger: sexy not war-waged. 

The gravity of me,
The pull

And inevitability 

Will begin to eat more than itself.
