No Billy Bragg

Shit. Fuck.
Goddamn it
and god damn me
for losing step on that
which is truly important.

I had forgotten
– completely forgotten –
to check up on the post-Valentine’s Day candy sales.
What has happened to me?
Who have I become?
Days have passed
and I have failed
– 100% failed –
to eat even one slightly stale peanut butter cup
or nibble on a somewhat dented gigantic jelly bean.

What transformation has occurred
that left me
this creature
that can’t see a good deal
when the calendar throws it
in his face?
What happened here?
What am I now?
