31, 25, all the way to zero;

shrink it, make it small.

Count the calories,

just as much as you need. That’s all.

A spoonful of yoghurt,

perhaps a serving of fruit; a tiny portion,

a slice of white bread,

some meat if it is an occasion.

To keep it going down and down

with measuring tape in hand.

Avoid your eyes in the mirror.

Just stand.

Observe. Are the numbers right?

5’6, 6’1, all the way to up there

but not too high at all.

What’s to be done?

Chunks of shoe? Careful not to fall.

Try not to stumble;

learn the correct gait.

Find the right pairs.

Don’t forget the size. Great!

This will do.

Observe. Are the numbers right?
