Tonight’s Dinner

time is nestling
raiding the pantry of seconds

as the cabinet
can’t find a finger to pinch a stalk of corn from
the doors outside of this

house are scrutinizing
governing fields of hornet nests
no one can decipher

the code on the lunch-box
enforcement agency is run by a
game hen

no one can tell
specialized educational procedures, the

type that enter and un
scrabble how we
thought we thought and re
enforce family values, the

microwaveable family, familiar
fun arm-chair
the one with all the nukes

breath of freshly pressed cotton
steam drying with Hollywood

hotel signatures in the
corner, scrubbing

off the chest of
underpants, those

are the basics
to the scene, the
rest comes with space
