blue peeps

it's hard shopping for one.
one onion.
one quart
of milk,
six eggs, a half
a loaf
of bread.
even then most of this
gets thrown away.
lettuce
might see a few leaves
pulled off,
the rest going brown
and soft.
the milk goes sour
and the eggs become
a science project.
one tomato.
one can of beans.
an eight pack of plastic
wrapped
American cheese. one
package of easter
peeps,
the blue kind,
marshmallowy sweet,
all for me.
they go quickly.
