Day 175 – Cake

The more candles you put on the cake
you start to feel like you can’t eat it–
how did you ever scarf down so much
and not pay for it in the morning?
You eat smaller and smaller pieces
until you don’t eat cake anymore
for the sake of your health
and it makes you wonder
if you ever really wanted it,
when you didn’t know what you liked?
When you were too scared to be
the one who didn’t eat cake?
