Star of Hunger

Boredom and hunger

lead to strange distractions.

Eating is a helpful action

that solves boredom and hunger.

But the fridge held no rations.

Jeff opened it thrice in an hour

the emptiness made him glower.

Having nothing better to do

he decided on a homemade tattoo.

He took the sharpest of knives

to his forearm and scratched

a bloody number thirty-five.

His favorite number didn’t ease his state.

He opened to door again to search for steak.

He found a full fridge, separate from his universe, attached.
