"From: The Earth" by Marcella Haddad


From: the Earth

Hey, I’m starving

Would you consider

this bright-green

gum wrapper

plastic covered

capitalist bullshit

diet of dying

paper bags scattered

afterthoughts on the road

nutritious?

Do you want these

bottle caps glass shards silver chip bags and

still-smoking cigarettes?

Neither do I.

I want flesh.

I want you.

I’ll wait.
