Sardines

If my dreams
came in a tin
you’d be on the label
and my entire night
would be spent
rummaging
through cupboards,
drawers
and under the sink
for the can opener
which I’d forgotten
I’d lent out
to a neighbour
the day before.

Sardines
are easier
than dreams
at least they come
with ringpulls.
