Secondhand Hunter
by Spencer Troxell
No longer a vegetarian,
I bathe in the TV light--
A fiery collision
Of unspecified objects.

I witness the winter
Creeping away.
It melts backwards.

Suddenly able to eat steak,
I cringe at the sizzle and pop
And inhale the sweet death.

Looking scientifically
At the small grease bubble
That suddenly burns my skin,

I am absorbed in the activity.
Fork in flesh,
Blood pooling on my plate.
