Voice of a French Fry in Love – by Winston Plowes


Eat me

Eat me to the accompaniment of fruit machines
Eat me with ketchup and mayo
Eat me slowly

Eat me

Eat me on the link bridge
Eat me from a red plastic tray
Eat me with too much salt

Eat me

Eat me on your last journey to Aberdeen
Eat me and make yourself late for the hearing
Eat me with your fingers

Eat me

Eat me and think of her kisses
Eat me and pretend that she cooked me
Eat me and text her

Eat Me
