Pin It

Ecce Panis Angelorum 

Tomato
round and red
says the mind in passing
but the body lingers
lifting, brushing skin against lips
a bristle of peppery stem
singeing my cheek with
summer's lusty song
here in this trail of dirt
where flesh meets flesh
here: this fragile erubescence
blood of the moment's whole
pours into me
its wordless
psalm
