Arm's Length

"Arm's Length" was published in the September 2007 issue of The Barfing Frog:

Arm’s Length

Holding at arm’s length

a glass of water

a book I love to read

a candy bar

a donut

a hamburger

ice cream

and French fries.

Snickering over things not healthy

or good for me

denouncing enemies

wanting to cause me hurt

and stomach pains

not bothering to wonder why

there is so much snarling and growling

inside of me

I figured that bears and lions have taken up residence

in my intestines.
