a cheesy poem

Photo by Luis Quintero on Unsplash

ooey gooey quesadilla

yellow yellow cheese

strings from my mouth

strings from my mouth

ooey ooey gooey

gooey hot hot cheese

sweetheart some things

sweetheart some are

unmistakeably American

I am with strings

of drool hanging

from my mouth, lips

slightly parted, yellow

wide-eyed contact

white tortillas press

my face flat into

my face flat into

the griddle.

This poem is a part of my lunch poem series. During the month of December 2021, I will be reading poems by Frank O'Hara's Lunch Poems and writing some of my own. If you like this, check out my profile for more! And watch me read a poem by Frank:
