we give ourselves too much credit

i imagined what the sugar cube equivalent would be for humans
& thought of little televisions

i couldn’t leave my house one night because of ‘allotted family bonding’
we all resorted to our individual electronic monitors
and conjoined once
to eat meat on a slab of wood

i thought ‘ravenous’
& then ‘delicious’
