Straining

By Susan Shea

Straining

Even spaghetti needs limits
or it will fall through the cracks

holes too big will let it
go down the drain

into the filthy underground
system with all the runaways
in the sorry sad cesspool

so please love your spaghetti
don’t be afraid to teach it
right from wrong

choose the right filters
the ones that say

no
that’s not the way to
find your destiny

stay for the time
of your life

be your
delicious
