  You could have a big dipper   

On Living Alone by Giovanni Mangiante

they never teach you in school

that avocados

are engineered to self-destruct

in a matter of hours

when you're the one who's

paid for the damn things,

and you never truly grasp the idea

of how deplorable,

miserable, disgusting,

and unholy your lifestyle is

until a friend of yours shows up

uninvited to your place.
