Skinny Girls Bleed Flowers

Skinny Girls Bleed Flowers

‘Skinny Girls Bleed Flowers’ is a slam poem by Savannah Brown documenting her experience with anorexia and bulimia. Brown personifies the eating disorders as monsters that first feel like love, but quickly tempt death. She provides insight into how these illnesses can allow someone to mistake an eating disorder as something beautiful: “Where sick skin breaks, sunflowers will grow.”
