Red Lobster – $35.40

—.—

Like a lobster in a net

I am famished for a future

beyond the melting pot.

I daren’t wish my back broken

or my insides a delicacy

for the capital machine.

—.—

I’ve never been one for the Vegan philosophy, or its ethics, rather; but, today I was struck by the savage ferocity of snapping such a beautiful creature in half. I am allergic to egg, milk, and nuts so you won’t make a vegan out of me; however, there, in amongst the Lobster’s broken shell, lay a magnificent allegory…

—.—

The capital machine shaved

the nape of my neck, looking

for a straw shaped entrance.

-.-

They took my creativity and family

as I offered up my soul:

“That they might be sustained.”

-.-

I watched them snap my spine

looking for the last of life, 

before the grand deposit—

-.-

God forbid.

-.-

Push me towards the sunset

in my borrowed wheelchair

to see what I’ve forgotten.
