guilty eatings

have you ever stood over a cheesecake
fork in hand
mouth full of sweet regret
the even weight on your shoulders
devil on left
angel on right

 muddled words ping-ponging
i should stop
and
just one more bite

shoveling it fast
before you change your mind
thinking of all those poor people
for whom store bought
is the only option

or even worse
no. bake.

side glance to the dogs
looking so disappointed
not because you are gorging
but because
you aren't sharing
me too

thankfully
the phone rang
