SARDINES
(2/25/18)

I am
bumped

I am
jabbed

I am
diverted
from my course
by this stinking
collection
of humanity

I would have
my groceries
delivered
if not
for the possibility
of one of you
standing
upon my doorstep

better
to keep you
ignorant
of my sanctuary

deal
with you
instead
in your
element

which I
can always
leave

or avoid
altogether

a can
unopened

no cleanup
required
