One easy way to lose weight
is to fall in love with someone
who is already in love
with someone else. Then,
when you’re about to eat dinner,
think about that. It’s like magic
without the magic!
It’s like snorkeling without a snorkel
or flippers or any fish to see,
so you’re just holding your breath
and your eyes might as well be closed,
which is like being dead,
but not. But close.
