Relative Convenience 

We have not been reduced
to harvesting spent lemon disks

and fatty skins of cooked
and consumed trout, 

so let us be happy in our level
of consumption and not worry 

about the occasional lack
of perfect choice in our sustenance.

Any fish or fruit will do
in this particular pinch 

any rind or remains signals crisis
—for now let’s just call our life a cinch.
