After She Told You to Get Up the Second Time

Too full—stomach tight—
I can balance this plate
on top of my belly button.fe1f64b599ed42caf657a7b99a0ee401
Thanksgiving tastes even
better after two days in
the fridge. Yams sweeter
with extra drizzle of syrup.
Ribs more fat than meat—
Cajun spices in the dry
rub. Boil stuffing down to
gravy over rice. Hush up,
woman, carb conscious.
Doing sit-ups with every
bite—I’m moving, dammit.
