sad sacked

March 21, 2013 § Leave a comment

I fall into
hair-trigger depressions
so easily
bummed because
the avocado isn’t right
at the top of the sack
where I wanted it
the thought of
having to root around
under the grapefruit
the can of garbanzos
and the little foam
adhesive donuts
I got to cushion the corn
on my baby toe
brings me down
I tell you,
things were going
fairly well up until then
so I abandon the avocado
and limp to my chair
to give myself a little time
I’ll think of what to
do with the beans
try to keep my mind
off my toe
and wait
for the world
to return my
stolen smile
