They Ate Themselves

Title from the Robot Ate Me. (MySpace)

The sun came through the kitchen window

exactly how good ch'i doesn't through our home.

It was bright and loud and hurt like a bitch,

or like you smacking me with open palms and asking,

"What happened to the God damn cashews?"

You quivered with the rage of some ancient, merciless deity

when I stared blankly and declared,

"They ate themselves."
