i hope you eat well



we’ve had meals together.

now you’ve gone away; though

i prefer my greens fresher

because you ate them so


like a baker shaping dough

our shared history

leaves its mark; burrows

into my every crack and crease


eat a loaf of bread

drink up that coffee

i’ll tell you “i’m upset”

no need to say sorry


i don’t like you anymore

but i’m not vicious

i will still pray for

your food to be delicious


bask in aromatic smells

savour life’s flavours

i hope you eat well

just not at my table


(inspired by Tupac)
