Metal food

She eats metal


she wants to become strong.

Steel sandwiches,

though not great for the teeth

or stomach,

promise to give her that extra zeal

in her life.

Nuts and bolts,

a simple dish to start with,

before she moves onto hardier fare,

like girders and cables.

A friend suggests assertiveness training

but she shrugs this off as faddish.

Her ambition is to become a robot,

shedding all human weaknesses and vulnerabilities,

so she can operate with mechanical precision

without error.
