Real Hunger

I’ve never been obese.
I feel like it’s gotta suck, though.

I mean I’m a smoker.
It’s just as bad for my health.

I guess in both cases,
it is the hand that hinders.

I’m addicted I say and it’s true.

I’ve heard these medical cases
of people who become so obese
because there is a part of their brain
that doesn’t operate to stop hunger.

In some of these cases,
the hunger is so extreme
family members are forced
to lock fridges in shackles;
hunger is so intense,
spice racks can be emptied,
and people graze their front lawns.

Now that’s some fucking hunger.
