Layered knots
grains arranged
and linked together
bound by the hands
that tied them,
the heat
that made them One,
life and love
graceful slices on a plate
from rich, sustaining
loaves


Back in the summer of 2020 I got all fired up over the idea of writing a bunch of poems about food – and I DID write a bunch of them! I called them the Kitchen Collection, made photographs to go along with them, published a few, and then (as usual) moved on to the next thing and never went back to finish the project. Here’s the first one I published. . . . another is on the way tomorrow! Thank you for reading!
