a hard slog

I’m trying to do my best
with what I’ve been given,
but it’s tough going.
the dyslexic chef
must be on duty again,
the one that when I say
“light on the cheese”
instead gives me double.
it’s a cheesy mess
over here, a cheesetastrophy.
I’m peeling away
a whole outer layer
of solid cheese, and finding
just more cheese under it.
if I were at home, I could
make something of this
mess, namely by adding
a lot more macaroni, but
I’m stuck. the longer I wait
the more gluey it gets.
should I give it up
or struggle womanfully
through it?
