I've Never Had Anorexia. But I Know It Well. I See It On The Street, In The Gaunt And Sukken Face. The Bony Chest. The Spindly Arms Of An Emaciated Woman. I've Come to Recognize the Flat Lool Of Despair. The Hopeleness That Follows. Inevitably, From Years Of Starvation. I Think: That Could Have Been My Daughter. It Wasn't. It's Not. If I Have Anything To Say About It. It Won't Be.
