Part of Speech: Noun

Definition: “greedy or excessive indulgence”


Found In: “Choi Jeong Min” by Franny Choi line 34 – “& accuse us of gluttony when we learn to swallow it.”

Explain: The word gluttony means being greedy. This helps me better understand the poem because it shows that the speaker is accused of being greedy but she accepts being called greedy because she says she is greedy.
