A Quasi-Poem

It can be like a phone cable put into an Ethernet jack


A queen bed with full sheets


Like a crinkle fry in the order of regular fries

A plantain amongst bananas


At its worst, like a Hummer in the compact spot

On occasion, it’s a Camry


Like a meter stick measuring out a football field


A vertical-striped Waldo


A trashed envelope for the grocery list

A towel as toilet paper

Viagra for hypertension


As harsh as 1x instead of 4G

As subtle as affect versus effect

But when we’re lucky, it’s the difference between mostly sunny and partly cloudy.
