a very short story
a lonely teen throws his dinner out in fury
because he desires company more than to fill his tummy.
a brother is busy telling his two younger brothers a bedtime story,
to distract them from repining about the lack of food in their tummy.
the lonely teen blankets himself, weeping silently,
how everyone disregards him even his own family.
meanwhile, the brother found a piece of steak in the alley,
happy, he was glad that they could live for another three days, at least.
and while the lonely teen in his warm blanket crying,
the three siblings in their cardboard blankets, smiling.
