Bread From the Earth

Not by bread alone,
but by eggplant and bok choy,

Not bread alone,
but by radish, pepper, chili,

Not bread alone,
but scorching sumac,

Stretching savannah,
Aspen that quake,

Not bread alone,
but by October clouds
set upon an eternal emerald sky.

The Oracle At Delphi

I wanted understanding,
I got transmissions.

I wanted the milk
Of human kindness,
She gave me her brand
Of kindness,

And this I was to lap up
Like a cat laps up milk.
