Angelo J. Letizia – 1 poem

Reject your nourishment  

            

Ignore me because only the stupid know 

Reject the poem 

Watch the video 

Roll down the window 

There is no breeze 

But simulated pollution 

(we create our nightmares too) 

The pie has salt in it 

So does the cereal 

Quicker journey to enlightenment  

Baked into all my bread 

Lead paint and bleach foundation 

I have created a masterpiece 

It will sell for half a million 

One acre kingdom where I can yell at the grass 

For not obeying interest rates 

But the grass 

Does not listen.
