chili cheese fries

the french fries were stuck
in a lump of hardened american
that choked the potatoes by the wad

the slender cuts jutted
like push pins from the clot of cheese/meat
as if shoved through a voodoo doll

the tray-shaped carton lay
like a messy casket displaying a corpse
while life at the party raged on
