Two Wives Ago


It’s a beautiful thing. Stockpiled.

Vacuum sealed. Purchased a little each pay day

for the last fifteen years

and two wives ago. Neither could see

my reasoning so I gave up trying.

You can only save yourself in the end.

Everyone else drains your supplies.


Dated. Rotated. Each 50mm can

checked monthly for corrosion.

In this room mostly corn meal

and 50lb bags of sugar.

A tunnel to the highway

shelved floor to ceiling

w/corn and tuna.

In this room alone, my water.
