Day old sadness
Like day old bread
does time harden sadness like bread
or does it soften the sadness
making it more soft
more like day old bananas
mushy, squishy.

What use is this sadness?
(as if sadness cannot be for
it’s own sake?)
Let sadness choose the path of fruit
not bread
and let sadness soften
my soul towards
the sadness of others.
