Ode to McTourist

You can be happy anywhere.

Forget the time lapse
and the face mask;
you don’t need

shielding.

It’s not them;
it’s you.

It’s not
the mystery-meat-surprise,
the prayer at sunrise.
It’s not
the slap-in-your-face-gutturals,
the laughter and mumbles.

It’s you.
You can be happy anywhere.

All the Target Sundays
and Starbuck grandes

the McInsulin
and waste-you’re-in

are nothing.

Wake up.
It’s not them.
It’s you.

You can be happy anywhere.
