This ad from the butcher..

This ad from the butcher
offers lottery tickets
with every, yes
$40 meat pack.
I am hungry for
1 kg of pork chops
with layers of my mother’s apple sauce
and mashed potatoes
and, hmmm, maybe some
July Brussels sprouts
followed by plates and plates of vanilla ice-cream
so when I sit down in front
of the television
one Saturday, my legs
and arms and head and all
at least my stomach
will be filled
when those balls
come rolling on down.
