To My Love, Lard

by Cafey Nated

IF Anna Nicole had swallowed
you instead of Methadone
she'd be alive today
although maybe not in fifteen years;
With your viciousness
hidden under tender onions,
above the whole-graininess
of the breads of life.
What are clogged arteries
between friends? We forgive you
since you are most definitely
the calm center of our whirlings,
the calm center of our swirlings
and the glue that holds us together.
