On the theme of Milk

Perishable

Milk is for sidewalks,
clear, hard plastic gallons
are ripped open
by overzealous workers
with chubby fingers
and spilled across
stepped-on
sunflowers and
bodega-bought
gum that darkens
the ground.

Milk is for Manhattan,
which runs parallel
to Bovine Avenue
and Moo District
where shoppers with
size two waist lines
drink 2% milk and
mingle in bars.

Milk is for schools,
the grave danger
is the lactose-intolerant
students who drink
chocolate milk under
the guise that it’s
made from illegally
harvested soy, while
eating their
medium-well
done hamburgers
during lunch knowing
that this combination
isn’t very kosher.
