and undrinking hard ciders.
My nightstand is a soy candle graveyard.
I’m the example of not caring and
yet I am always hungry and will spend
a quarter of my life in a fast food drive-thru.
To only leave behind the silverest streak of cheese
paper for the right creatures.
The question: how can anyone
in this world made of water crave more
if something smarter and brighter
in this universe wonders
how human it could be when we aren’t
