POEM: "This Hunger Note"

This Hunger Note

Notice how once you’re hungry
strange Chinese kebabs duōshao
a peanut cabbage dumpling xièxie

in-between the tired body the soul
and the miles we walk disappear
the distance from A to B is nought
except that there be men with fire
after us through the oily streets
demons follow across a lifeless desert

while Heaven wants a moment fades
the sweet food we wished for gone
you don't respect time unless you have to
the extraterrestrial team watches from afar
they’re curious I mean they're impressed
This is magic. Really. Think about it.
