the quiet glow of the marmalade by cristinaledesma33

the quiet glow of the marmalade

I allow myself
the luxury of breakfast
(I am no nun, for Christ’s sake).
Charmed as I am
by the sputter of bacon,
and the eye-opening properties
of eggs,
it’s the coffee
that’s really sacramental.
In the old days,
I spread fires and floods and pestilence
on my toast.
Nowadays, I’m more selective,
I only read my horoscope
by the quiet glow of the marmalade.
- Dorothea Grossman
cool poem and image combo

Standing over the steam of the cup is meditation.

Love this. It’s moody. You’re drawn instantly to the richness of the marmalade and I adore that poem😁
