Sustenance

Hunger

drove me to

seek sustenance

at Safeway.  Desperately I searched

for food without fillers not born in a lab

for food without pesticide tainting its skin

for food without chemical colors mixed in

for food not injected, infected or foul

for food not obtained through abuse of the wild

When suddenly from deep inside my soul

a deafening tone rose and took control

my body shook as i scremaed and yelled

that the food in the store was not fit to sell
