- Madison Fulcer
Are you simply not hungry?
I’ve been waiting weeks for you to open me up
and to see your face.
That expression of excitement and concentration
as you ponder your options.
It’s dark in here without you.
It’s like every time you open me you bring the light.
That cheese you bought is starting to smell.
And, I wish I could tell you that you need eggs.
I miss watching you cook.
You are a terrible cook.
But, I’ve always loved a comedy special over a cooking show.
Sometimes, I get scared that you just aren’t eating anymore.
Are you eating?
You think you can live off crackers and canned soup.
I know you cannot.
