Well, instead of working on my novel/thesis I am researching a paper and instead of posting regularly on the site, I’m working on a research paper, When that paper is done, I’ll be back…with a short short for you guys. I didn’t get any feedback on the poem and still would like some. It’s still up if you’re interested.

I started to write this as a joke while I sat in class, but I liked the concept and finished it. I would love some feedback on it. Suggestions for improvement, what you think about it.
I cried once,
eating a Wendy’s dollar menu cheeseburger.
My hunger palpable.
The pangs banging against
the inner lining of my belly.
I’m fucking starving, I kept thinking.
Had you asked me what starvation was
I would have answered,
We sat in the drive-through
I want my damn burger,
Give it to me.
I need the meat.
We drove, the car smelled like
potatoes drenched in reused oil and refrigeration.
Give it to me.
It was passed over
white paper bags and
cardboard potato holders.
The smell: greasy paper wrapped meat nestled
between white bleached bread
soaked with condiments and a meaty residue.
The lettuce ripped apart by
Meat, pickles, and ketchup
Ground together bringing tears to my eyes.
Thanks again for the feedback, in advance.
