like your friend who gets the sugar cereal and you stay the night at their house and at your home all you get is corn flakes

the windows
leak
and the floor
isn’t totally flat
and there’s a
big blue diesel
engine down there
anyway and
i ought to
start it and
run it and
when i flip the
engine toggle
the oil pressure
alarm goes off
and i know
nothing
of engines
and nothing
of physics and
the lighter i use to
light my propane stove
just ran out of fuel
and fuel
is another thing i
don’t understand
all that well though
well enough
to know that
when something is
desperate enough
it will seek
and find and
combust.
