Every morning

Crackers, hardtack, flour and water
The natural yeasts in the air
Wooden boxes,
Nails dusted over
Packed tight, twelve gross per
So far removed from hedonism
that aspirations
are only ever daydreams.
I wake in the morning
Lifting the bell to access the
fresh buttercream.
The mechanical beating
separating fat from protein;
cured meats.
Crackers, hardtack, flour and water.
