I work from home a lot, wasting away.
Needing sustenance but still stuck, hungry.
My available options are not good.
A bag of broccoli, a raw, red pep-
per, half a cup of lemon yogurt, and
some squares of rich dark chocolate, to taste.
A month ago I ate a tin of fish
sardines by themselves nothing else, the can
was buried in the back of the pantry.
Writing in iambic pentameter
is a real pain in—three more syllables.
