Your Muffin Has More Self-Esteem Than You by Faith Reale

Your muffin has more self-esteem than you
Faith Reale

It is round
juts out
content in its cellophane wrapper
and does not
apologize for
its existence
on your plate.
It asks you why
you’ve just apologized
to a muffin
for your
at the table
for the third time

Faith is almost two decades old and owns six pairs of overalls. She enjoys drinking coffee and avoiding eye contact with her bank account balance.
