Back-yard tested and approved.
Pillbox

Leashed up-
 1
I'm just a high school protractor set
 2
(who cares?)
 3
and the fast food in the air-
 4
the grease is slicking me down
 5
so I stay glued to the sidewalk.
 6
 
 
Dragging on to the dumpster
 7
(stop eating the grass, dog)
 8
behind
 9
the overheated apartment
 10
where a wave of wet, trash air
 11
hits my face.
 12
 
 
I'd much rather be
 13
consuming constellations
 14
like potato chips,
 15
inbetween sips of proper chai-
 16
 
 
the weather's nice, though.
