Meal For One by Marijo Giblin

Meal for One by Marijo Giblin

Scrambling
in the back of the freezer
for the ice cream
she knocks down
one of those TV dinners
with the calories listed on the front
and the corn rattles against its plastic compartment
like a maraca
reminding her of the
Latin Dance class finale
and how he snuck off
with the instructor
even though she was wearing
her favorite red dress.
