Things I Would Not Eat or Drink -- a (non) food poem

THINGS I WOULD NOT DRINK OR EAT
by
Gregory K.

Marbles
Ashes
Broken Glass

Newsprint
Quarters
Fresh mown grass

Roaches
Elbows
Maps of Spain

T-shirts
Sneakers
Acid rain

Surfboards
Carpet
Chain link fence

Soupspoons
Napkins
Circus tents

Soap scum
Dandruff
Hoover Dam

Clorox
Ear wax
Deep fried Spam



(I'm posting an original poem-a-day through April in celebration of National Poetry Month. Links to this and other poems here on GottaBook (and there are lots of others, because poetry is NOT just for April) are collected over on the right of the blog under the headline "The Poems".)

Not deep-fried Spam, but pan fried?

Haha! Nice poem.
