Against the Many Targets

By Max Crinnin


Wegmans has two sized carts or a basket

I take and hold my self tightly.

It is mid-day, mid-week, and only some of us

Really have time to be here now:

The old folks push angel food and tapioca,

Wealthy housemothers of Williamsville

Are hungry for something, more or less

Gluten? Look at the people

Admire rare cheese and Spanish

Hams! I think I could live

Here, like I did today

In the presence of Capicola.
