Sheltered Snacks

Ink-fingers girl

You are eating currants in the library


And we aren’t allowed to do that

But soft-skinned, ink-fingers girl,


You are consuming the rebellion you effect

Just as the responsibles are meant to.


You say hunger is important

You say these books were written with one hand

You say as you chew that nothing is new to you because you are staying current

And then you laugh at the pun

But those are raisins,

And you are a fraud

For you eat your need

And you scatter raisins for the birds

Who told you last week that they don’t need raisins they need a solid income and warmth from friends

But you have that marieantoinettementality

And you say let them eat dried fruit
