Praying Someone Knows CPR This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
the enjoyment of my short stack
is cut
... short
when I spot a
crotchety old man
with his
chicken-cutlet flesh
that is
road mapped with veins
that are highways of medicated blood
I bet there’s a prescription pileup
in that palpitating chest
bet his blood pressure pill’s rubbernecking
while he enjoys
that Doctor Disapproved
plate of bacon
