it was on the two billion
seventy hundred and seventy five million
three hundred and ninety eight thousand
four hundred and sixty ninth beat
that the final piece of fatty material
(possibly from yesterday’s cheeseburger & chips
or the pepperoni pizza from his
weekly wednesday poker night)
narrowed one of his coronary arteries
to the point when blood could no longer
adequately get through to his heart.
a small blood clot blocked the tiny passage
but a larger one quickly rear-ended it
till soon the pile up was a multiple vehicle
collision clogging up the highway for miles
blood stops getting through. his chest exploded
with pain. the muscle started dying.
almost straight away.

seventy hundred and seventy five million
three hundred and ninety eight thousand
four hundred and eighty second beat
he was almost dead

his final thought was:
fat should be a bigger word
than three letters
