Spitting And The Principle Of Utilitarianism

it starts with a little agitation inside your throat
the nerves send the signal to the brain

and to use in order
to make

Yvette

what we like in her
is her naivete

she snobs you
when you are not needed

yet all smiles when
she has a request

brought in the strictest
principle of utilitarianism

sometimes you feel
that you are nothing but
