considering that I spent the last two hours
speaking in a foreign tongue with a limited supply of wine,
that I had to suppress my annoyance in a meeting at work
with a fussy and uncommunicative colleague
and that my bike slipped on the icy intersections of
sidewalk and street,  I deserve to eat several cups of
caramel popcorn tonight
in spite of having gained weight
in spite of my pants being too tight
it's from the oral steroids I need to keep
my hair from all falling out
if I must be bald, let my tummy be filled
with popcorn, let my glass be full.
