Peace, Baked Daily

We winnow ourselves of husks
That we may grind ourselves to flour
To make dough

Leavened by imagination
Flavored by the salt of our sweat--and blood and tears--

Rising (some things cannot be hurried much)

Baked hot
(Surely this will burn us, let us out!)
Emerging crusty
Glorious to the eye

Breaking bread
Ourselves, each other
