Paper or plastic?

You keep wet holes and collect coupons

for deep fried foods.

You are of an advantage.

For within this realm you have slipped away
from the untied ropes, the age-old

books ripe with lies and cliff notes.

The days to you are but a collection

of dear bright things that are merely

there to churn the flavors across your tongue.
