Hollow

Isn’t it interesting

the bulimic’s almost defensive

insistence

That no actually, I’m quite anorexic

How even within disordered eating

There is a ranking.

Where hunger is good

and bones are king.

Hollowed

And then from weakness eat

I binge

I purge

Ashamed of the latter two

I just want you to know

I starve.
