poetry by j matthew waters

little piggy

he practices his complaints
before entering the store
knowing full well
he will leave unsatisfied

the return desk at his back
he mutters underneath his breath
a receipt and a little credit
tucked inside his fanny pack

on the way home he stops at
wendy’s for a bacon cheeseburger
then after a while reminds himself
he’s got changes to make

november two thousand thirteen
