born out of naiveté
put out as a culture
bought & sold
everyone buys it
everyone eats it
everyone consumes it
you shared your soul
you gave it away
now a piece of you is at Burger King
in a Rugrat-shaped mini chicken filet
catching yourself admiring your own work
the only true success test
breathed it to life
a piece of your heart on display
now where to keep the bloody knife?
I found this while looking for a poem to start my second book with. I really love this one, but it didn’t fit that purpose. I just keep laughing every time I get to the chicken filet part!
My first book, The Wind Could Blow a Bug, is NOW AVAILABLE!
[Pssst…Book 2, When You Least Expect It, is COMING SOON!]
