Being inexhaustible, life and nature are a constant stimulus for a creative mind.
~Hans Hofmann
You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.
~Ray Bradbury


Gluey, off-white strands
are twisted
to form a blemished circle
for
they never turn out perfect
dough the color of a sidewalk
cannot expect to have
much potential
but it does
a hazy mist of flour
swirls around the sticky mass
like snow on a dried-up field
I pound the dough roughly,
my way of anger management
and easier-cooked bread
I have been a Maker, a Creator,
even if it was only of bread
I have shaped the outcome
of a pile of yeast,
my family's dinner,
a bit of happiness
Gluten never tasted so good
