Inspired by that episode of Portlandia where they wonder about where the delicious chicken came from. by Kristine Brown

Behold, the essence of pink
they say bacon is societal Prozac
though of this, I’m not too sure

stays in my dresser, preserved.
Red meets white

the wider I’ve come to smile
an optimal selection
for clear celebration.
Salmon revives this ordinary night.
To imagine takes the cake over cramming.
