No Fat Chicks

by Laura McCollough Moss

I have to look closely to be sure

But they are there 

Bold stickers on three sides of the truck's cab

Porcine cartoons 

Cutely admonishing

No fat chicks!

I am enraged

Who does this guy think he is?

This contractor's helper who makes

All of fifteen bucks an hour

Jean shorts

Tall white socks

Discount sneakers

This fat chick is paying you, Asshole

I snort to myself

Yet I avoid him

And when the time comes

That I must speak to him

I can't meet his eyes.
