Thanksgiving
was a literal food fight
not liking the turkey
not cooked enough

The sauce too bland
too spicy

My uncle’s hands
serving
(How dare! How unwashed!)

You know what church
he attends,

it’s the one
where God is Boss
El Patron

Robbing futures
to only certain jobs

How dare I go
into something else.
