I am greedy for information.
until my brain aches and bursts; stuffed full.
I wake up and feel parched.
I snack on Tweets.
Sweet fistfuls of popcorn,
finished before the film even starts.
Op-eds and stats I can’t recall at the crucial moment,
in a heated four-beers-down brawl.
Consume this much,
and forget what the best mouthfuls
It’s only in the shower,
that the best stuff finds it way back
out.Return to issues
