Raisin Bread


Raisin bread
oh, Raisin bread
I put you in the oven
with plenty of butter
and
a flat egg on the side
with pepper and sea salt
and yes
you didn’t think so
but
I could make a revolution out of this
my poems
I do it for fun
because
bread is heavily underestimated
like
who says I’m high-calorie
high-fat
screw you
I bet you
they’ll serve me
in New Kensington
I’m just a loaf
trying to get a nut
or two
in my holes
to fill up the emptiness
I feel when I get burnt
but really
why hate on me
what did I ever do to you
except
exist
after rising on a sunny day
Oprah likes me
why can’t you
