Work left office
And came right at home,
the hours don't start
And the calls don't end.
The laptop glued to my hand,
My eyes burning with the screen
No more commute, no sun
I miss those cafeteria tables.
Feasting on every snack,
No time for lunch and dinner
I don't even leave my bed
Typing away my life.

Dim sum
Then some
7/5/2018 - Poetry form: Footle - Copyright © Mark Toney | Year Posted 2018 - “Dim sum (literal meaning: snack) is a style of Chinese cuisine prepared as small bite-sized portions of food served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. The Cantonese tradition of having endless cups of tea and dim sum is also called “yum cha”, which means “drink tea” in Cantonese... Yum cha has its roots in travelers on the ancient Silk Road needing a place to rest. Thus, tea houses were established along the roadside... People later discovered that tea can aid in digestion, so teahouse owners began adding various snacks.” (Wikipedia -Dim Sum)

With nimble hands, the opening of a plastic
bag transpires,
Dire need to consume food, edge of bag rips
A roar of condemnation, sneering at you
Contents of food fly out from its captivity,
Dispersed across the floor like lawn sprinkler
water

With frightened eyes, overcome with the rush
of tears as if they were competing to fall out of
them,
Food stares at you and relishes in its final
moments,
Should I abide by the five-second ru–
A gargantuan foot bears down on food, like one
slamming his foot abruptly on car brakes
Cccrunchhhh, cccrunchhh...

Such a tragedy!
But, by the way, this pair of shoes sure look
better than mine
With nimble hands, you seize the individual by
the neck and–
Sssnapppp, ppopppp...
Dire need to feel remorse, but none embraces
you

With nimble hands, the opening of a plastic bag
transpires,
Don't ever touch my food.
Thank you.

Don't you hate it when you eat a snack from a plastic bag, open it up, only to witness one of the edges ripping?

Bowl of weetabix
Topped with spoonful of sugar
Warms a Winters Night

Where there's will
There's a way
Where there's way
There's a why
Like why do I have to traverse  
This path
Why can't I just stay home?
I back wid lil snack

Little girl peeling in Orange in traffic
with your favorite fingernail
I love to watch you attack
tear off the skin chunks and save them in a jar in your car because the smell makes you feel so far away
it's very clean-smelling
This cold little orange
it's a dragon ball in dragon hands
My sore throat needs this

Knife cuts the scone smooth
Happy thoughts with bitter taste
Fragrant memories
Scones with strawberry jam, one of my favourite snacks!
Which does bring back unpleasant memories, but still

Guess what?
I just ate an entire coconut!

Shell and all,
Because i aint a weakling y’all!

At first i must admit it was hard to crack,
But you guys know strength is something that i don’t lack.

Gosh the milk inside was ever so refreshing.
I swear to you those coconuts are a real blessing!

Oh great I’m once again starting to get hungry.
Do you guys want to share some among us three?

If not, i guess that’s alright,
But i think it would be best if you got out of my sight.

Orange, light, crunchy
Consume hand-made calories
Gone to then digest
