Improved enough to hunger
but not enough to eat, I dream
of Texas BBQ baked potatoes,
iced butter cookies at Christmas,
sopes and sushi and dal makhni

consider whether today’s ache
is worse than yesterday’s.


BTP: Prompt from January 17, 2011

bread, because

I heard that it is good to believe
in something, so I have decided
to believe in bread.

I believe in bread because
it is one thing before yeast,
and another after.  Because
it is one thing before fire,

and another after.
I believe in bread because
it rises, and having risen,
does not fall.  Because
it fills everything, if
only for a moment.

I believe in bread because
it is earth and human’s
best works, refined.
