I Scream

by Dynah Jaysa Zale

I scream at mounds of chocolate covered Breyer’s --
for packing the pounds onto my thighs

I scream at bowls of Ben & Jerry’s --

          for adding inches to my waistline

I scream at strawberry flavored Häagen Dazs --

          for the demise of my size six

I scream at Edy’s Cookies n’ Cream --

          for cushiony size thirteen’s

I scream until my throat is sore

for sticking me on a diet
