why are white women
stick thin in magazines
and on television,
where everyone can see?

sometimes
i wish that i was a black woman
because even fat black women
are graceful and confident,
beautiful.

and if i was so thin
so skinny-thinny that my
collarbones were like wire hangers
and my ribs a xylophone
it would never be enough --

i would want to be
thinnerthinnerthinner
until i was
nothingnothingnothing --
just ash and bone.

The terrible, terrible truth about the media, is that those people are getting the eating disorders because the way certain photographers portray them.

This world is sick.

It's strange because it is, unfortunately, true...
