Your beauty glows
like the sushi I left in the fridge
for four and a half weeks
before I found it hiding
behind a jar of mayonnaise

I still haven’t
had the courage to throw it out

It haunts me
that sushi
haunts my thoughts
and stokes my fears

Maybe if I ignore it
it will eventually go away

One thought on “Beauty

  1. Homer Simpson tried to get rid of what was left of his ten foot hoagie and it wasn’t pretty watching him nibbling on it as it hung over the garbage can. Unfortunately, the Sushi is never going to leave you!
