Enabling

It doesn’t enable someone

To be able to wear clothes that fit.

It doesn’t enable someone

To eat.

It doesn’t enable someone

To let them have self esteem—

The only enabling I’ve seen

Regularly

Is the enabling of self-harm,

The enabling of shame,

The enabling of punishment of fat bodies.

That kind of enabling

Goes unchecked

By everyone.
