Appetite, may you find your end of night

between two English muffins,

painted with the bravest strawberry jam.


Laundry, I dare you

to wrinkle


in mountainous folds to make your

hilly peaks of butter cream.


May this lonely enthusiasm

inspire a banquet triage;


a mission to exhume

skeletons from their shelves.


Set the table,

every chair will be taken.
