Poems of Love and Longing

Joys of a Simple Meal

Bring me
A loaf of rough bread
A ladle of olives
A handful of figs

A token of feta cheese that
Comes from the sheep of Kefalonia
A bunch of muscadine grape that
Grows wild and

Half a pomegranate
I will eat
Be filled and satisfied
No hunger for even

One morsel
Of fancy foods
Or for love
If you bring me
