Jimmy the Baker’s Pocket MFA, poem by Dennis Mahagin

Read­ing is easy,

writ­ing is hard;

so we watch a lit­tle

TV, sour­dough

loaf, fudge

brown­ie, our very

souls

becom­ing human

scones, juicy peach

cob­bler, reluc­tant

steam from pie holes,

each to her own

nour­ish­ing

scene,

edi­fied, seri­al­ly

and hor­rif­i­cal­ly

 

scarred.
