when you thought you had more ketchup

Warning: this poem has crude humor.

-realizing you’re out of ketchup when you thought you had more

trying to write a poem
when nothing comes to
mind reminds me
when you’re looking
forward to eating
ketchup like on your fries
only to find
that the ketchup
is low in the bottle
like low tide
when you wanted
high tide
when you were up
at five a.m. fishing with your uncles
so you slam
the bottle down
hard on a hard
surface
hoping to force
whatever is left
to fill in the spout
but you open the cap
and squeeze and
all you end up with
is a ketchup
diarrhea fart
spraying it everywhere
on your clothes
plate and counter
and that is when
you think you should
have just quit
and eaten it
without
