Because I’m so hungry for bacon
I’ve put a fatty strip of words in a pan
to remember the slathering of mayonnaise
that made me toasty when
no one told me
about excess, and
tomatoes were like heaven
absorbing smoky pleasure
pork cured palate unquestioned

Oh to eat my sandwich in the parade
and taste it before the rain.
