Hunger Strike

Weird Poetry

You famish me

And dehydrate me,

And make me feel like

I am waging a hunger strike

Against myself.

You starve me so effectively

That Cheetoh dust at the bottom of a crinkled bag

Fills me up

Like a 5-course meal —

Complete with white table linens,

A chocolate fondu fountain,

And an open bar.




*** They say when you lose weight, your stomach shrinks. So maybe… cheetoh dust can make you feel full, eh Sugar Lips? ***

*** Sometimes breadcrumbs or the dust left behind in a bag of cheetohs (or dill pickle chips… superiour to all chips), can feel like a lot. And sometimes a 5-course meal can make you feel empty and unfulfilled. Depends on the day, I guess. ***
