Thanksgiving without an End

by Ed Kornfeld

After Yehuda Amichai

INSIDE the stuffed turkey
there's stuffing,
Inside the stuffing, with canned walnuts,
is me
Inside me
my bitter-tasting disappointed 40-year-old soul
Inside my bitter-tasting disappointed 40-year-old soul
the stuffing, with canned walnuts, and prechopped celery,
Inside the stuffing, with canned walnuts, and prechopped celery,
and two-week-old supermarket cornbread on sale,
turkey giblets
Inside the glistening giblets
me,
Inside me
my stomach
Inside my stomach
an entire stuffed turkey
