In The Kitchen

Words stuck in the mouth
slimy on the back of the teeth
ink on the roof of the hungry mouth
my mouth
licking clean the page    we lost
while we all starve

I’ll commission a Van Gogh
The prettier the fruit the better
it will taste
when we burn the canvas
for its carbon
sticky with bitter decadence

(Let them) eat the fruit
