Invisiphilia: Introduction, and Part One

Hi folks. Many of you know I’m a fiction writer and poet, but I haven’t posted much of either on this blog. However, I’ve been picking away at poem in several parts called “Invisiphilia: An Epic.” After sitting on the first few parts for a long time, I decided there’s no better way to get this moving than post one or two parts a week. They’re reasonably short, and some are shorter than others.

So here we go.

Invisiphilia: An Epic

◊ ◊ ◊


A happy day, three weeks after

the night you were conceived.

But Doctor wasn’t too impressed

with what your Mom achieved.

“You shouldn’t gain an ounce,” he said.

“Perhaps, should lose a few!”

All told in order to prevent

the birth of a fat you.

  1. Great use of rhyme and hexameter. It’s about time someone covered the epic fail of the obesity panic in an epic poem.:)

  2. What a terribly insane thing, to tell a pregnant woman not to gain weight. How can that possibly be healthy for the baby?
