STARVING IN YOUR 20’S by IGGY ODDITY
Born in August,
Teething on starfulness
Like any fire doomed
To be put out.
Starvation circles me as
My only wish:
To look into the sun without blindly
Suffering the consequences.
To cost myself for a moment
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,
Will begin to eat more than itself.
