Eating


We are all sin eaters
We eat at funerals
At weddings
At births and christenings
When disaster strikes
We eat
In the hope, perhaps
of touching life in the face
of fear
Whenever death touches life too closely
edges blurring
We eat
To let Death know
Which side we’re on, still.

I like the idea here, the image of eating to defy death.

We do. But then food is love and life.
