Spiritual Starvation

At a display
of religious art
tortured faces beckon.
I’m drawn
into pain.

A gaunt, hollow
feeling
made manifest here.
A hunger.
A burning.
A thirst for more
represented by dark figures
with sunken cheeks and
upturned eyes.
There is beauty here.

Hidden beneath my fat,
a terrible thinness
cries out
to be fed.
