Please Accept This Crust Of Bread

"I am the Bread of life..."
Christ

please accept this crust of bread.
may it be buttered with the sun.
with wildflower jam.

washed down with amber tea.

with forgotten happiness.
may it crunch when you bite into it
with the crunch of no more dreamlessness.

when you're hungry.
suddenly in prison
or merely alone in the day-to-day

with the moon behind the clouds

remember this piece of bread.
and be full.
