cooling or burning
peroxide on my skin
I am acid
dipped in the sugar of a coca cola drink.
The lady at the counter
gives me samples to refresh my soul.
And here I am contemplating
capitalism and gratitude.
What is it to be thankful?
Thankful it is.
It is ten pairs of underwear.
I am 35 dollars.
My aunt sings Christmas songs in the car
and I hate her because she insults China.
They are all yelling out a window
and my cousin says the Mcdonalds lady will think us drunk.
I am all existence.
I don’t know what I want for Christmas
but I am spending money all the same.
