bread.

Standard

when out for a night

at a wonderful irish pub

with warm company, warm food, and a warm fireplace

we decided to make the crazy leap

to ask for bread

and were looking forward

to a warm basket overflowing

with fresh, crusty bread

image our surprise

when a single 6-inch slice of soda bread

arrived on tiny plate

to be shared between us

 we stared at it for a minute

looked at each other

and amazingly

we were able to eat the whole thing.

“if thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.”

–Robert Browning
