SLOW WRITER (a dizain)

by Marie Elena


In the time it took to write this dizain,
I should have lost weight.  So why didn’t I?
Well truly, Sugar, I just can’t explain.
You’d think it would be as easy as pie.
I’m just in a jam.  Can’t figure out why.
Computer cookies! Could there be a link?
My appetite for the sweet flow of ink?
Digesting rhymes in the grocery aisle?
The weight of my words?  It all makes me think.
I wonder. Let me chew on that awhile.
