crumbled and rolled

a morsel, please 04/21/2009

like preteen kate
eating kippers for lunch,
i listen to belle and sebastian,
alone, attempting to force
a manic phase with my herbal
medications, dumpstered,
in pill form.

oh, but can’t i have
one morsel of my own?

yes, but not
for long.

as a worker
you eat the weeks
like a swordsman
swallows flames

rarely afforded
the luxury of hunger.
