Acceptance Reset

Here it is, home on a plate 
steam comes up after the frying pan 
did as the raccoon coffee poured 
streaming across the street 
looking for an ocean states away 
having forgotten that the world is unresponsive 
to the pleas of squirrels and the deliberate tires 
who's fateful meeting could be ascribed 
to either nature or nurture 
as you please, and according to your faith 
in yourself, your country, your theories 
while a conversational story: 
this is where I was 
comes out unruffled 
after circling the lake 
I, the vulture, 
seeing my body from above 
waiting a little longer to feast.
