My Last Supper

A meal of mostly meat
to last more than the night
fills me up before the body knows to register it's dismay.

Ribs stuck to the bone and
scattered bits of barbecue mix
with a simple crunch of chips.

All rests like a stone above my hips
and follows me.
It whispers to me of long nights waking
and a morning light with
no desire for more.
