Modern Shopping

at the mega-mart
they have alphabet soup
in various fonts

I bought one in cursive
and all the noodles
were joined together

The 70s

we were stopped
at the border

they dragged my girlfriend
off into another room

ten minutes later
she returned

she said
they gave me a cavity search

I said
do you have any cavities
