The guilt sticks

Paw Patrol are looking after you
this afternoon. Potato waffles have too
much salt and sugar for little hearts.
You are collecting falls on your forehead.
You’ve never met a giraffe in the flesh.
You’ve never met a tractor in the flesh.
You’ve never met some people in the flesh.
I don’t know why condensation appears.
I mean, I do, but I don’t really, not enough
to answer your questions about mould.
You are here. I am here. We are here.
