ECONOMY by Patrick Newson

The night baker bakes

The bread.

He stirs and kneads

The dough

Until it is smooth enough

To crudely shove

Into oven

After oven

After same same oven.

All the same ovens

All the same loaves

No cakes or pies

No icing or fancy frosty letters.

Just loaves after loaves

For the ducks and the fish.
