NIVEA Milk

I’m the only one that lives in this studio
so, naturally
I keep my bottle of
NIVEA milk lotion next to my desk
it stares at me all day
cap open
little bit of residue lotion
lingering at the top
still fresh
still white as milk
I know the bottle is there and it knows me
for some reason the bottle never runs empty
not like those ketchup bottles in my fridge
how many of those god dam things do I gotta buy
