Failure

he is:
beefy five layer burrito
chicken quesarito
cheesy gordita crunch

I am:
Doritos locos taco
crunchwrap supreme

always always always
we check the items before we pull away
burned too many times before
five items?
five items
the accounting is my job
and I’ve been fucking it up
“they forgot my CGC”
which is short for Cheesy Gordita Crunch
I’m sorry
“fuck”
I’m sorry
“‘sokay”
but it’s not I have one job
and now a carful of drunk girls have pulled up to the window behind us
chanting about fire sauce and he sighs
