I Watch Documentaries Instead of Horror Films by Tracy Dimond


When I’m bored with horror films
I remember that the top scientists
are researching cellulite causes.

Why doesn’t age have a leash?
I believe enriched cereal
will enhance my bra size.

Synapses are a liquid dead zone
while we’re losing the battle
against underarms.

My diagnosis was to relax.
If you put your tongue on my spine
I would feel some calm.

I don’t think I deserve
any more free samples.
