INT. SCI-FI HALL – EVENING

Matt brandishes a large marshmallow gun.

MATT:

Hey, does anybody want a marshmallow?

Eli raises his hand.

A single shot is heard.

Co-op Lunch (Tofu)

with one comment

“Like the origins of cheese and butter, the exact origin of tofu production may never be known or proven.” -Wikipedia

 

O Nameless Tofu Originator

you are more immortal than any of us are going to be.

Were you a prehistorical genius, experimenting rigorously over many years?

(different combinations of bean curd, salt, etcetera).

Or was it blind luck?

like the Chinese emperor who was boiling water outside, only to have a leaf fall in it

and invent tea. Perhaps I should stay home all day

mixing, stirring.

Bavarian Creme Donut

with one comment

I ask for Boston Creme.
It is the queen of donuts.
But, a dark surprise.

This Creme: Bavar’n.
Origin: European.
Not American.

Do you know how far
Boston is from Bavaria?
Pretty far, I think.

I asked Google Maps
“Can’t find directions.”
“There is an ocean.”

“Hottest Dog”

with 2 comments

O Hottest Dog,
we are not so different, you and I.

If one wished to get into my wallet, one should know that the way is puns.
Even not very good puns.

I purchased you because it seemed like a good story.
Sort of an investment in the future.

In response to some conversational opening, I could flippantly remark,
“Ah, yes, I have eaten the Hottest Dog.”

“Hot? It was pretty hot. I don’t know about Hottest.
What glorious days shall come to pass.

Wind’s a bit chilly here, Hottest Dog.
Come on, let’s add our warmths together.

I do not like banana peppers.
But that will be okay.

Sausage, Egg and Cheese on Bagel Sandwich

with one comment

I would like to say, sandwich, that I cannot remember you.
I would like to keep you away from my thoughts.
There are so many interesting things to know,
hhhhhfacts about physics and the sun and geniuses from history.

But even now compartments of my brain are summoning up
the feel of my teeth as they bite into your warm banality.
