August Poem 39: Internet Tofurkey

Work. Pleather jacket. A fast food worker.

I had this idea that I was going

To add something poetic to the scene.

I had something new no publisher would

Touch. Take your order. Prefabricated

After college. An independent in

Facebook. Internet Tofurkey. Wouldn’t

You know it? Friends you never hang out with.

Community. Antisocial fucks. One

Accomplishment In letters, and there is

This living. Fresh out of the microwave.

I could do McDonald’s. A Bachelor’s

Degree in the McRib sandwich. Boneless

Yoo-hoo chocolate English and victory.
