An Ode to Food in Times Like These

An Ode to Food in Times Like These

Symptoms may include the loss
of taste and smell
So we loaded our ovens with
banana breads, cakes

Eggs, cinnamon, vanilla
In resistance – we bake
Captured in film, first attempts
In resistance. We bake.

Despite the cruelty of
Symptoms, diseases and death
We say grace
to the holy carbs

Thank you Lord for the sense of smell
Thank you Lord for the sense of taste
and Thank you Lord
For this delicious morsel
