Waiting on a Bagel


It’s so early and dark

sleep never came

Went for a walk

felt hunger pains

Strolled to the shop

where that dough is baked

The lights are on

and the workers all awake

Their hands knead the magic

but the sign says “closed”

Fifteen minutes

the heavenly smell rose


Damn that I’m early

A batch comes out

my stomach tends to worry

How can I wait?

What can I do?


My teeth now chew

Finally the door

clicks and then swings

My feet know the way

my heart is on wings
