you already know this: it'll always taste / as good as it looks
till it doesn't / usually the second or third time around or /
upon swallowing / probably half the point of the thing
is how bad it looks / the point of the thing—it looks bad /
i never puked just / felt queasy inside / wondered why
i had to push / limits dictated by nature, or maybe
not / maybe nurture did this to me / maybe i did this / to myself
