Poem

What crumbs we are compared to loaves
of kneaded expectations
And yet we’d have them scrounge for lifetimes
Sticking to their famished fingers
Feeding their little minds with tasteless worries

We’d love nothing more than to lie on your tongue
and disintegrate into what we’ve become

Poet Bio
