On Overeating

One order of bihon
Lumpiang Toge to complement
Coke on the side
Gulp… gulp

One order of bihon
Two Lumpiang Toges to complement
Coke on the side
Gulp… gulp… gulp

Hubby offers his share
I gladly accept
Crunch… crunch…
Gulp… gulp

“Do you want more?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Alright, I’ll go get some more.”
“Off you go then.”

Freshly cooked Bihon
Two Lumpiang Toges more
Coke for the push
Down the esophagus

Beady sweat on my forehead
Tummy to explode
Gas to let go
Waiting for the escape

It’s waiting for the cue
When one can no longer hold
When one surrenders
To life’s daily disasters.
