Pizza and Guilt - Sept. 3, 2021

three couples

three Jews and three Gentiles

pass around open boxes

sliding pie-cut pieces

onto paper plates

and with greedy fingers

pop pepperoni and suck

cheese through oily lips

which religion teaches guilt

most effectively? I ask

nuns rabbis clergy

of every kind are spun

into six cases propped by

evidence and presented

to the chewing jury

and whether the guilty pleasure

called pizza is on that list

isn’t clear from all those

glazed eyes and groans

but at our ages

it’s not that hard to guess
