When there is nothing left but sky,
all there is to do
is look up
Just You Wait Until Your Mother Gets Home
is it the hot dogs or the sense
of existential dread that keeps
us at the kitchen table, awake,
at two AM? We think this is
debatable, but we ran out
of relish three hours ago.
We pull the halves apart, add
the extension leaf, stare
into its starless void.
