I ate too much Pecan Praline ice cream
tonight, spooning it from the deep, white
bowl and into my mouth, sucking the
sweet vanilla creaminess down until
the sugar-coated pecans were left,
then slowly munching them into powder
that dissolved over my tongue, the intensity
lingering like late afternoon love making.
Now I feel bloated and slightly sick,
a distended belly, which I’ve disdained
in others, beneath my accusatory palms. Here
I am, no better than any other slob who
stuffs their face in the heat of uncontrollable
despair, now looking at the toilet from the
corner of my eye.

oo i hate that feeling…where it might just be better to get it back out of you than to suffer….and no we are not that much different…smiles.
Ice cream is high on my vice list and once I start it’s hard to stop. I hate feeling like a beached whale. Bleeeecccchhhhh.

Thanks, disastress, and thanks for stopping by.
