THIS IS A POEM ABOUT MODERN CONCERNS AND FLAMETHROWERS AND SACRIFICE 12.1.17

12.1.17

I am deeply concerned
that in the past month
I have gained seven pounds,
while learning, just now,
after twenty-seven years,
of places in the modern
world where humans
are testing flamethrowers
on other humans. But
veganism is the question.
Should I return to it? Are
the health benefits ersatz
or real? Is it worth the
sacrifice?
