iDiet By iDrew

when she was seven a half stone  
joanne stuffed her face with pie and chips
and pie and chips and more chips
until she was sick
when she was seven stone
joanne would cut the food on her plate
into tiny pieces
wave her fork around whilst talking
pretended to swallow
yet hadn’t eaten a thing
no one noticed
when she was six and a half stone
joanne wanted to look just right for a date
but feeling grossly unattractive
decided she needed to lose some weight
not eating a thing for days and days
when she was six stone
joanne binged on chocolate
then stuck her fingers down her throat
when she was five and a half stone
joanne shaved off her long blonde hair
joked she was going for belsen chic
none of us laughed
it wasn’t funny
when she was five stone
joanne was admitted into hospital
she was just a bag of skin and bones
didn’t even have the strength
to walk unaided
when she was four and a half stone
with not an once of ugly fat
joanne was dead
sandwiches and nibbles were served at the wake
