Feeding

After the years

of living

you wonder if your

heart is a loaf of bread

you’ve been breaking

into pieces to feed

hungry, clamoring pigeons.

Each one crowds and coos

as you reach to crumble a piece,

then flies off when he’s had his fill,

and the next looks at you

with starving eyes.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
