the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Deprivation never tasted so good

This is what I had today for lunch on this, the fourth day of my cleanse. (I had two of these) It’s a hard corn tortilla (the only kind I could find that did not have any added sugar), vegetarian refried beans, roasted and minced garlic, fresh tomatoes, plus an avocado mashed up with salt. I then squeezed a fresh lime over the top. Next time I eat these I’ll add some fresh shredded lettuce, a few chopped up green onions, and a sprinkling of cilantro. I’m pretty sure I hurt the avocado’s feelings when I ripped off its husk.
