POEM - Don't Forget The Sadness

Sadness gets mixed into everything we
do, like your one tear that fell into our
coffee. I think how it was the perfect
miscegenation of spirit and earth
for nothing is ever pure in this world,
but neither is it puritanical:
for we will never abdicate control!
It is just the meniscus of egg white
dropped into a bowl, touching the flour;
it is round globes of oil which resist
mixing with the opaqueness of cold milk;
the separateness of these ingredients
is what we overcome, making batter
our mouths know is true and so inclines us
to earnestly want one more piece of cake.

M C Biegner
