Dry goods and processed foods deaden your palate
While your gullet undulates furiously
to make due with what amounts to nothing
and your body is hungry and your eyes are dry
but your nails have grown long in this squalor
and every now and then you scratch yourself
deep enough for the blood to just get through
and you know that you are living
though you feel as though you’re dead
but you only think that it’s a terrible shame
and you’d be far more comfortable
six feet under in a large padded box
or less hungry at the least.
