Nourishment

Nou – a round, round sound

   now. rich. meant.

 

Mmmm…

 

we're rich now   thick clots of butter creamily

   slathering arteries and veins still deigning to permit unfitted

surfaces


we’re rich now.  Now we know (what) rich meant. Puddles of hot, congealed eggs nestling strips of pigs too young not to die   farm-machined butter and pig stomach curdled milk

   completing agri-farmer’s dream of riches

spent

 

Nourishment in a land hungering to find its center

    as the body politic bloats

and everyone’s looking for

   an honest meal.
