Transformers

Transformers taught me about the scarcity of resources.

First on TV,

When Megatron was always first to the Energon Cubes,

Then again at my neighbor Tony’s house,

When I discovered all the folding robots

He had tucked underneath a ratty piece

Of smoke-smelling, stained, shitty shag

Had been smuggled from my tupperware bins.

 

We weren’t rich,

But I didn’t have to ask my mother

Why his mother couldn’t just buy him transformers, too.

Because even when you’re a 5-year-old kid

You know there’s always somebody poorer than you.
