Upon her neck was just a skull;
She had thin stilts for legs.
Two reasons rose for me to mull
Among the milk and eggs.

No picture of a starving child
Was ever worse than she,
An irony that my mind filed
There at the grocery.

Three pancakes
For breakfast.  Enough
To fill me.

Mid-morning,
They have disappeared.
I’m starving.

But lunch comes,
Catfish buffet.  All
You can eat.
