[Even When Cooked]

Better
it happened to the mailman
than your grandmother,
right?

Surely
we all have bones to pick
with the crumbling infrastructure,
surely.

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

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

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