Emotional Eating

She types away
And fills her calendar
She daydreams about losing herself
In a pint of vegan ice cream
Or hell, a pint of almonds

She used to binge on foods
She was allergic to:
Dairy, gluten, peanuts

Perhaps the most monumentally
Self-destructive moment
She could think of
Was the week she met
With a divorce attorney

Walking down the street
From the car dealership
Where she was getting
Her oil changed
Straight into a sports bar
At 2pm

Mac and cheese
With mounds of breadcrumbs
A massive slice
Of carrot cake
And two huge beers
All at once

Not to mention
She drove home after that

She was constipated for 3 weeks
