I don’t feel fat

I don’t feel fat.

I feel bloated–

Not in the intestines but in my

Arms Face Chest Thighs.

I don’t feel fat,

I feel like I’m taking up room.

My body feels unwelcome in the

Space it inhabits.

I feel unattractive.

I feel despised.

I feel unworthy of love or desire

Or the feather of confidence

that is picked up by a gust of

laughing whispers.

I feel marginalized,

penalized,

menialized.

I don’t feel fat.
