One Tanka

[For those unfamiliar, a tanka is a traditional Japanese poem that builds upon the traditional haiku. It follows a syllable pattern of 5-7-5-7-7, and was often used to tell a message.]

-to a girl-

When you professed to
love all things fat and squishy,
I jumped into my
car, drove to the nearest store,
and bought a box of twinkies.

The End
