Holy Eating

bagels

hearts halt

eyes dry out
stomachs lose legs 
to stand on
 
and mouths ache 
for words that will not come
 
and as the
the motions appear motionless
 
making your self
something to eat
is revealed to be 
the kindness your soul starvingly seeks
 
oh 
go on
make your soul a
sandwich
