That show on Ethiopia —
the way an eye won’t blink
when a fly walks on it open?

What must a fly’s leg look like,
so close like that? At what point
do you stop swatting a fly away?

Who could look at food after
seeing something like this?
But you never know. Today

I get up late, wash my face,
and stare at the mirror.
I am hungry, hungry, hungry.
