You know that feeling
when you look in the refrigerator
and you think you have two pears
and you only have one pear
and it says I am an apple
and it is holding a knife
to the throat of a pear
that’s saying Please Help Me
and you say to yourself
I guess I have one apple
and one pear after all not
two pears and no apples
or maybe two pears and
one pear wants to be an apple
I guess I also have a knife
a knife oh so terrible
