Don’t forget the bread, draft no. 3

I’ve heard that long ago 

some nuns anorexic became

Supposing the bread and wine 

all they needed to sustain. 

I think I must pause writing now 

and greet the world again. 

You must not eat communion only 

even if you could, my friend. 

Eat whatever is put before you— 

But don’t forget the bread.
