Delicious Donut

I contemplate
I buy it on aromatic instinct
The fight emerges
Don’t eat it!
You’re not even hungry!
I sit in my head
While the words debate
The palate ultimately wins
My hands follow orders
The sweet melting chew
Savory icing
Made for my mouth
I close my eyes
Taste buds dance
Pure enjoyment
A moment has escaped me
In my candy land
Until it’s gone
A guilty pleasure
Plagued stomach
Churning to
Disappointed intestines
An alien
They don’t quite understand
As it has no nutrients or vitamins to absorb
Sending the lipids and sugars
Away to live as fat
Surrounding areas I dislike most
I look in the mirror
And I imagine where that regretful donut went.
