'AN ADULT HAMBURGER (understands romance)' by klipschutz

An adult hamburger

built to fit an adult mouth

times millions.

Comes with greaseless home fries

for those seamless new thighs.

You utter your one-word Italian

at the beverage bar

and invent your own salad

named after yourself.

An adult hamburger

for the mouth that’s been around

times millions of blocks.

Coiffed with choice-of-cheese toupee,

all on an art deco tray.

An assertive, ambitious achiever

of a burger, a hamburger

out to have a good time.
