Hunger sits there
eating everything.
Lately he’s acquired

random lengths
of copper wire interwoven
with a fibrous substance

which imbues it with
a polyglot extravagance
of indecipherable hue.

He says it tastes
a little like beef jerky
soused in Phenobarbital

and glue. People pass
him, think he’s screwy.
He finds it chewy.
