"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


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.
