Eat It

I envy the girls at Panera

in their school uniforms.

They order with the conviction

of saints venerated at their school.

“I’ll have that and that, but not that,” proclaims one.

Never that,” says another.

Their world is divided into subjects

they can choose not to take.

 

I stir cream and sugar

into the blackness of my cup.

I know that life is indivisible

and I must eat it all.

 


 

Word Prompt: uniform
