Method of Consumption

 

Method of Consumption

Those who dine

at the table

of unforgiveness

hold fork and knife

over a plate of old wounds,

ready to tear into targets

of unresolved pain.

Time, the immortal chef

of memories,

serves his courses

one

by

one:

bitterness, vengeance, self-destruction

all covered with rusty platter-tops.

Like food mingling with burnt tongues

and spoiled palates,

we feed, ignorant of the different tastes

textures and qualities.
