The bunker is tempting

The discomfort tastes like

overcooked green beans and

diesel and feels like eyebrow hairs

pushed the wrong way.

The memory feels fresh

straddling a playground pommel horse,

worrying over splinters

in my young hide.

Ply me with creamy things

and I’ll forge on without complaint.
