Imagine a Flower

Imagine a flower picking its own petals,

Throwing them on the ground in disgust.

Criticizing every fine line and fuzz,

It doesn't seem to add up.


Imagine the trees dropping their leaves 

All at once to appear thin and crack

With a mild gust of wind.

It doesn't seem likely to happen. 


Imagine a kitten being obsessively 

Smitten with the calories in her

Kibble or milk. 

It doesn't seem to make sense. 


Imagine a girl beginning to learn to 

Hate her own shape and size

Or measure the circumference of her thighs. 

Yes, this seems right.
