that word almost
like pantry, like
metal cylinders maybe
with ripped paper labels,
green beans, corn, tomato sauce,
vacuum sealed rations of a now dead
plant, a rectangular prism of oats and
sugar. A package designed
for a package designed
for lunch, for
the car ride,
or a can
for the
you have
when not
too poor.
