Free weight

Wait
 – to eat
think plan
Is it time yet?

Watchers
 – look! Chocolate cake! Baguette! EVOO!
Look down. Globular.
 Breasts, diaphragm, Belly, pubic bone.
A hemisphere.

Watch! they reappear
they disappear
Watch me skinny
Watch me w i l l o w
Watch me sylph

Weight
– Dumb-bells. Bar bells. Wine glass.

Watchers
– Scale – up and down
a song a voice a range a rage
Do-ray, ME, me ray Bread dough
Count
Food Scrabble

Wait
– Is it time yet?
Pointless at 3:00 p.m.
0 points. Zero. Zero.
Wait until tomorrow.
