Pragmatist, Gandhi, And Veal - Poem by Matthews Welschire

You, my pest. You who hold entire history of my past -
landscape of my soul's pace, the ping-ponged echo
of parking garage voices

somewhere a sneeze cures cancer
instead of creating a hurricane...

And late in that same day (before it closes)
sitting calmly,

I weep.
Eating veal with the smiling,
ravenous and bespectacled ghost of Gandhi
