MY POOR HEART
So plagued by cholesterol
each small word that makes it through to the other side,
If you eat right, if you move often enough
at least some things can be avoided.
We all know this is not true. No matter
and to fail spectacularly. In each body,
there is the wake of a hundred others,
and consider quite carefully
I wrote this poem after eating a bacon-grilled-cheese in front of my father who is in the middle of the most successful diet of his life.
