asparagus soup.

 

I can look back on it now & laugh

but at the time

well

it really wasn't that funny

 

adrift in the baking sun

for days on end

nothing to eat

nothing to drink

 

except the asparagus soup

til that ran out

& we watched the last tin float away.

 

and desperate times

call for desperate measures

only

drinking your own pee's not that easy

without a cup, or a soup can

 

still, it could have been worse

 - normally I'd give my right arm

to be alone with Jennifer Lopez

but the aftertaste....

 

when I surface from hallucinating

momentarily

& remember that it's not J-Lo

after all

 

no – it's Nick Griffin,

and we'd drunk the Listerine days ago.

 

I'm just glad I wasn't hungry.
