A small book about hamburgers that slips into a bright foil hamburger sleeve. Moral and political provocations abound.

from “ham(ming it up) burger”:

burger of country, burger of town
burger of mediated renown
burger of half wit burger of plug
burger for whom this office is bugged

you be a burger and I’ll be a thing
and if there’s a song here
we’ll give it to sting
