SUNDAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: And when they sat down in the morning
Subject(s): Family Life; Relationships; Relatives

And when they sat down in the morning
to bowls of cold cereal, each in turn
would notice the blades of a ceiling fan
spinning at the bottom of their spoons,
small enough to swallow, yet no one
ever mentioned it, neither looking up
nor into each other's eyes for fear
of feeding the hunger that held them there.
