This is what they call a “potato.”
an image obviously snuck away
with a mobile phone, in poor lighting.
but I don’t mind.
This is the norm.
It’s either this or sweet n’ sour chicken.
But, I don’t mind either.

Watch me from that bench,
snuggle me whole and cheerful.
do whatever you need to do.
before 8am tomorrow.

I will likely be here.
a yellow-eyed potato,
sleeplessly sitting on this bumpy floor.
