Thoughts about Craving, in the Shape of a Poem

It was easy before

to give in to cravings.

Just go to the coffee shop,

the store, the sushi place.

Order in, take out, delivery.

Quick service, next day shipping.

Now it takes me two weeks

just to get my hands on a chocolate bar.

And the only reason

coffee isn’t sold out in stores

is because people like to drink it fresh

so hoarding makes no sense.

Be creative.

Just learn

to make do.
