Mute Obese Desires

Leftover fast food
deliberately bought
to stuff the maws
of boredom, fear and laziness

Like one mind shared between them
they pass desire back and forth
nibbling, nibbling, nibbling
then leave it be
let it grow
and feed on it again

I’ll preheat the oven
passions should be served hot
and lay the extras
on a burnt out sheet

It takes so much
yet so little time
to quiet Wants now
they have no song
they’ve lost their voice
all they have left
is what can be
eaten, eaten, eaten
