fair to middlin’

Too many chips
too many trips to the kitchen
can’t hold my stomach in
not fooling
anyone,

Oh god!
even lockdown is fattening
maybe
I should try exercising
and more than my mind.

But I’m a bit past that age
when
I need to be trendy
where I need to be slim,
pliable and bendy
and chips are okay
not every day
just
now and then.
