Pepperoni by Jakob Chapman

uncountable noun
thin slice of life
sitting in its own pool
of oily blood
hot salami
in an Italian tsunami
flooding the hut
filling the homeland
with savory security
when the moon hits your eye

Like eating Canadian bacon
in the shower
while my lover
takes a leak

Tader Gun by Jakob Chapman

I fell in favor
with my future father-in-law
while piping the PVC
reducing inches
from 4 to 2
with a pinch
gluing the pieces
and filling the chamber
with hairspray
bug spray
and propane
while he stands back
behind the shed
and I launch a spud
over the rainbow.
