The journey was interspersed with the crackling of crackers
the gradual emptying of peanut butter.
Loved items (a coconut, a disemboweled jar)
Dropped into innoficial trashcans [on the floor]
with a thump and a lonely shudder
While we, laughing at their [forced] departure
kept walking, feeling only sorry at
not having more to consume
suffering bellies somehow sustaining
a steady pat pat and blah blah
of two lightened bodies.
