Cannabis-driven hunger spurs pillage of cupboards
with Viking zeal. Mere spoonful of peanut butter,
stale crackers, unsatisfying plunder.
An unsullied Reddi-Wip can whispers
sugary promises from the refrigerator.
Eager lips purse around its slender spout.
Pillowy foam explodes over teeth and gums.
Sated by sweet indulgence, hunger yields to slumber.
Reddi-Wip’s hollow corpse points
an accusing plastic finger at its assailant.
