My round swollen belly
so much different from
her. Bloated belly full
with hunger.

My stomach churns with
a food baby. Her stomach churns with
a smorgasbord of pain. There are no leftovers
in a starved continent.

What we have is rarely what we eat
here. What they have is rarely enough to eat
there. If it wasn’t so convenient
could you still eat?
