Bacon

The horrifying stench occupies every corner of the room.
The stale yet gooey appearance reminds me
of its origin,
the insides of a filthy pig.
A stuffed, blown-up pig.
The bloody red countenance
right on with the palest of whites.
The meat from the bottom end,
from the leftovers.
The most opaque fat,
so solid,
so strong and hydrogenated,
it is the core of a monument.
The dense bronze substance
called oil
dripping from every corner.
The glossy paint
to cover the sculpture.
A drooling animal
Waiting to ruin
Your body’s function,
The hardened, roughened texture of “meat”
Bombarded with preservatives,
Loaded with flavoring.
Mixed with the slippery fat
trans fat
rejected in other foods.
But bacon is bacon.
Its purpose
to make use
of unwanted “meat”.
The parts
crunching together.
The line
of
oil,
fat,
dirty
pork,
go
in
to
your
body.
The cholesterol
the pounds
the contribution
to high blood pressure.
All for a taste of
the sickening “meat” of an animal
the cheap, excessive oil,
the domestic fat
of the obese pig.
The easiest way to fill up your tank.
To fill up your tank with priceless junk.
Junk indeed.
Bacon,
a way to
dispose of the leftovers
of a mass-produced animal.
Bacon,
our own body’s enemy.
Bacon,
a cobweb of fat.
Bacon,
the strip of death.
Bacon,
the food industry’s weakness.
Bacon,
a stink bug dropped on a New York City street.
Bacon,
a rejection to sensibility
Bacon,
a globally preferred food?
