Inexpensive Sins

we’ll buy a rack of Milwaukee’s and
a can of Easy-Cheese, the type with the orange cap that
is, legally speaking, still cheese,
and some pretzels. No, not that bag, put it back,
get the Utz and save some pennies,
and that’s ten dollars down the drain but
we’re drinking hard and scarfing
the finest death a science can make and
here and now, shit, this might be heaven
and this might be all we can afford but
it’s not all we’ve got.
