Ode to Don's Donuts 

Pillar of glutenism!
Carbohydrate community center!
Sugar sanctuary!

Pass gas
and pledge allegiance
to cheap food.
There could be a sign
above the counter —
"Bread Is Life" —
while the people
order roast beef sandwiches.

At the crack of dawn
or the heart of midnight
people of all
shapes and sizes
lining up
to get what they want
and also a little
of what
(nobody says this aloud)
they need.
