"You have been taught to grow out / I have been taught to grow in."
"I learned to absorb."
"I never meant to replicate her."
"That's why women in my family have been shrinking for decades."
"A fugitive stealing calories to which she does not feel entitled."
"How much space she deserves to occupy."
"All of them started with the word 'Sorry.'"
"A circular obsession I never wanted."
Fiction, poetry, and all that good stuff . . .
