The Essence of a Day


The Essence of a Day

The Essence of a Day

She captured the mere
essence of
men sitting, legs on her
coffee table –
stuffing popcorn,
chicken wings,
pizza, cheese, and crackers,
into their mouth –
while they yelled
at a screen where
men dressed in padded suits
and kept rolling over sod –

Men with feet on her
coffee table
dropping chips covered
with French Onion Dip
screaming at a large screen
TV while a stranger is carried
into the house for this
day – to ruin her rug –

And scream while she cooks
more frozen food she
purchased at a crowded
market – only for men
to swear – while women
gathered for commercials
and laughed.
