To break her crust with bare fingers

the warming earth

this loaf of bread

one must tear through, thumbs pressed in

encounter root, rock, worm

the soft centre of things

one dark, one light

hidden then exposed by the work of hands.

One must prepare

for dark circles under nails

the definition of finger creases

a crumb confetti on the lap,

and with hands raised to open face

the smell of history; this land

broken for you ~

daily bread.
