[Even When Cooked]

it happened to the mailman
than your grandmother,

we all have bones to pick
with the crumbling infrastructure,

For one,
these lasagna noodles are brittle
and flavorless [even when cooked],

no longer hold the public’s attention
or appetite. Big business has gone
too far.

on a cardboard box–healthy, fibrous,
nothing carcinogenic [that we know of]

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
