Eating Disorder – Jade Tinslay


Wear me on your lips, your delectable hips,

my opulent weight a fine coat

draped over your craving bones.


Let me nestle about your thighs, glaze your eyes.

Let me taste you, lick up the lonely crumbs and consume you,

guzzle the corked wine of your blood.


Forget those hungry hands, yawning out from distant lands.

Only the dainty dark of this sugar spun room,

swallowing my greased promises.
