Dang it
this is a little nuts

but I'm willing
to own up

that wherever there's 
good luck
and low-fives 

and pushes coming 
to shoves,
you can pretty safely 

lop-off any 
of those yucky 
corner parts 
you don't love—

so long as
in return, you just 
trust them

when each 
of those
stubborn items 
begins begging to insist 

that you never
dare try
to cope alone 

with the tremendousness 
of however 
many other 
mouths like yours
one could feed 

off of 
nearly seven years!-
worth of 

sandwich crusts.
