Death in the Mouth

i read the sound and the fury
in high school and felt smart
you said i’m funny but you make me laugh
like the mouth of the nutcracker
on my great-grandmother’s kitchen counter,
you make me laugh like the mouth
of my great-grandmother gasping for air.

it sucks that we kill animals, it sucks
that they taste so damn good, it sucks
how you can get enough protein every day
but you’re still going to die.
