the result of being an ageist at the age of twenty-two. i think this sprung out of the comment "i wish i were old so i could not worry about my weight" (by a sufferer of anorexia)...

every fragile, teetering step
we envy; how fragility is a curse,
how death lurks.
but! when aching of bones replaces
desire for them, when mind
rots away and body prevails, however sourly,
however shortly,
we watch them go with a disagreeable air,
they pinpoint mortality. how dare they,
existing for all to see, for us to see,
to ridicule, to waste.
but free;
no longer shackled by conformity.
piteous god! take them. they
are yours and serve you better than me;
inside their homes, their breath
is stale
their phones lie cold.
