My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“Your work... is to resist the easy answer, to seek out the truth... just as the author's work is to face the blank page with faith and optimism.”

A Bakery in December

now the woman pink armed and wearing a white baker's cap as she kneads dough on the oak kitchen table in late slanting light lives inside the perfume of bread she loafed an hour ago baking in her black stove

a woman with bread in her oven and bread to be in her fingers in the steaming pane of my luck seeing this aroma of pale light come millions of miles to touch her my face
the birth of bread

-Mike MacMahon
