"How can it not know what it is?"

Supermarket aisle cart pushed by
amorphous blob of sentient protein
imagining that it's got a good bead
on things while it choses it's favorite
brands while it listens to Rush on the
smart phone (you can see where I'm 
going) in spandex and running shoes
thinking about Sunday's barbecue with
cousin Sandy and her kids and the new
pool they just got (it's cheap but it's all
they could afford) and they'll play lawn
darts and eat corn on the cob and straw-
berry shortcake for desert in the good 
old summertime the same as it ever was.
