Preservatives

Some things never go bad.
Like hostess donettes
Left in the drawer of a college dorm
For an entire month,
Some things have too many preservatives
To ever experience deterioration.

Some things never go bad.
Like hostess donettes
Eaten a month after their expiration date
Because you are just too emotional to care.
Some things are too artificial
To ever experience decay.

Some things never go bad.
Like hostess donettes
Shoved into your mouth
Between gut wrenching sobs
Over a relationship that just disintegrated.
Some things are too fake
To ever experience reality.
