what you have is punctuated by what you don't have. that's how we read the grammar of our lives.


a lurid shade
of yellow
too much
any was too much
mayonnaise on
the mediocre fish sandwich
and the soggy fries
undercooked, i thanked
the counterman who'd
so thoughtfully
hand delivered the sack
of food to me here
on the ninth floor
of the same building

yester morrow
day one
