Beyond Merely Edible

All the ads say it’s hot and juicy,
and it’s hot alright, but the juicy’s
really just grease that congeals
pretty quickly back into fat.
He’s reasonably sure he can
feel it coating his arteries
even before he swallows it.
None of this, though,
keeps him from eating there
three or four times a week,
nor does it cause him to consider
ordering a salad
or the lo-cal fruit parfait.
