Grocery Wish List

by Ken Sanes

Please keep certain foods
away from our door,
the ones that are constructed
from sugar, salt and fat,
with an addictive crunch.
We know they’re good for breakfast
and good for a snack,
but they’ll turn our remains
into a buffet for lunch.
And lead us not into the Toontown
of the grocery store’s inner aisle,
with the grinning packages
full of marketing guile,
that would try to hook us
on cotton candy nutrition,
offering an ironic comment
on the expanded state
of our current condition.
