use it up


The CD player in my bedroom broke.
My boom box.
I was left with no white noise
To protect me
From the Friday night sounds below.
I slept fitfully and dreamt
I was pregnant and that my fridge
Was filled with chili paste
In odd tupperware containers.
I worried about how long it would stay good and
How I would use it all up in time.

It's not even 8 AM and I'm dreaming of Salad King with too much chili paste. Mmmm. Do you know Salad King?
