Provisions for a Disorganized System - a Poem for Day Sixteen of PAD

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) System,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles could include: “Weather System,” “Solar System,” “Writing System,” “Ecological System,” or any number of other takes on systems.

Ah, Let's Just Get Takeout

Provisions for a Disorganized System

In my pantry where cans 
of green beans dated
1989 have been kicked
     into place
underneath dried lentils
and other leg-
and held prisoner
by some vile,
salad dressing, and questionable
soda crackers
in a box with one torn corner,
you’d agree that I never
managed to become
Therefore, I am not
part of the living
