Eating all of the pasta in this cupboard
like nothing I expected
You can greet me at the door
Or you can make me break in
through the window in the back

You say, “No,” as you punch me in the thigh
and say “Charlie horse won the race!”
“What race?” I ask
“The race that smells like up dog,” you imply.
I say “what’s up dog?”
Again, you punch me in the thigh.
The same thigh
you already punched
