nourish

Standard

good food will flood needy bellies
if the stars align and tell us that
it’s okay now
it’s safe now

god smiled at me last night
in the last place i’d expect it
and with fever pitch i tingle
just like my face does when
i eat starchy thick mashed potatoes

it’s with a quiver that i shudder
to think that i could be convinced that
this was all wrong
and not the right way
to eat my heart’s content
and to give till my belly is full
of laughter and song
