Dweeb scarfs down yellow thing on a stick

Not corn dog skewered nor mustard shrimp
but impaled nonetheless -- saffron treat

bought hot, black van, mid-block,
downtown, busy street. Not one clue

who dweeb is, his Facebook page,
where he lives. No redemption takes place,

no hate erased. Yet yellow glob gone,
dweeb too, with iPhone, poof,

head down, thumbs busy, thorny crown,
up dark alley in gold Subaru.
