Too Much

Look at your floofy, shaved dog,
your exotic pet,
your platters overfilled
with opulent food.

Tell me you won’t
throw it all away
when you’re done—
leave the monkey in a shelter
(or let it loose in the park),
hand the nameless pup to the porter,
let the lobster rot in the trash—
you can always
get more.
