blade of steel (buns)

low back muscle is unsettled,
it had gone unvetted for too long.

i’m sweating, smelling chicken, cutting
through its raw thigh
remembering things could be worse.

i wonder if i can commit seppuku
through my left butt cheek
but the blade of steel would break
on my buns of steel.

ready the toasted buns
this chicken’s almost ready
stab it with a fork and plate it
this kid’s almost completely cooked.
