when I was in my first year of university
I would often buy a bag of turkey dinosaurs
which I would eat with crinkle cut chips
heavily salted
with plenty of mayonnaise
and barbecue sauce
and tomato ketchup

and with full fat milk
in my coffee

and strawberry milkshake

at two in the morning

for Christ’s sake
I’m an adult now!
