By M Krockmalnik Grabois

After the car crash

in which my wife lost her leg

I noticed, amazed,

half a tuna sandwich

sitting unmoved on the dashboard


My wife had been sleeping across the back seat

of our Civic

She was quite short


and got really mad

when she was a kid

if anyone called her a midget


I had to wait for the Jaws of Life

to get me out


Meanwhile I ate the sandwich

It had too much mayo

and the bread was stale
