McDonald’s gives me –
Enough tissues to wipe –
My mouth and ass of their meals

Notes to this poem…
Seriously! With the amount of tissues given to me with meals at McDonald’s, I can only wonder how messy they deem their customers to be. Today, my mind wandered more what to do with all this tissue, whereby I thought I had enough to wipe my mouth when it went in, and my ass when it came out! lol
For the record, I save all the tissues I get to use in other meals, for painting, messy crafts, wipe my nose instead of using real tissues, etc. I don’t waste any of it. I sometimes even hang on to not well used tissues to use the unused parts to dust, clean something on the kitchen counter, etc. I really do not waste any of the stuff! In fact, when I moved back to Nova Scotia in late 2001, I bought a package of 6 Kleenex tissue boxes. I have used half a box since! I still have the other five unused, and the half used box serves as the foundation upon which I leave McDonald’s tissues not yet used.
The W-series poems comprise mostly of haiku or tanka composed during walks I took on the portion of Halifax’s waterfront known as the Harbourwalk, during the warmer months of 2018 & 2019, when the Seabridge was in place.
