An Unbalanced Diet

a jaunty angle

after 12,

i was drunk

on plastic papaya pickle,

honey-glazed, ginger-finger-smattered,

i needed


but wanted you

as simply as my blanket blue.


did i dial

13 incorrect times

the correct number?

should i feel unprimed

that you slept

right through

what keptย me awake,

painfully inchoate?

should i resent

your balanced diet

and wish you

raw-papaya-sticky-finger nights?

    I don’t mind an unbalanced diet once in a while, but I do admire people who keep a balanced and health diet the whole time ~ Don’t we all wish for a blanket blue, food is a comfort after all ~

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful words with Real Toads ~

    Happy day to you ~
