Stages of Cheese

In the morning

I eat four slices

on buttered toast.

.

At noon

I eat two

between slices of bread.

.

In the evening

I eat three

on a platter with honey,

nuts,

fruit jellies,

and cold cuts.

In the market

there are many,

on the moon,

there is one.

.

Cheap bits

from a green cylinder

sprinkle

on pasta.

Next to wine

and made

of fermented life,

the cheese sits.

.

Orange slices

masquerade.

Buttery cashew

and spices

masquerade.

.

But

they are not fit

to pass

and the Sphinx’s claws

take away their

cheesy titles.

In the morning

I bought some milk.

.

At noon

I acidified,

I mixed,

I cooked,

I strained,

and hoped

for the best.

.

In the evening

I had cheese.
