i tell them it is a Lenten fast

(Not a broken heart)

Then eat furtive bits of things

Stale cookie crumbs, scavenged pecans, half-eaten

Fruit

I miss peanut butter sandwiches

Toast 

The feeling of sitting down to a

Proper meal

Love this feast

Set a proper table 

Glimpse the King

Returned whole 

To find his furtive 

bride

combat boots hidden beneath

A garage sale dress

All things made new
