Janet, Your Toaster Isn’t Plotting Against You

by Cassidy Cooney

Janet with the crazy hair

Told me that LED lights aren’t real

And I said, “Janet,

Where’s your mind going

Every time you wail that spiel?”

She’s been so insistent

That we’re missing

Out on something big

That the government’s conspiring

Against lamps and Christmas rigs

Yet I do not have the heart

To tell her that she’s lost her mind

But I worry that she’s traveling

Going back through years of time

“Janet, please just listen,”

My friend, Marcus, begs and pleads,

“There’s a doctor down by Vagrant Street

And he’ll give you what you need.”

Yet Janet never listens

And she spirals into thread

Eventually amassing

To the point where she wont leave her bed
