Honey Oat Sandwich Bread

Getting your hands dirty always happens when you don’t plan on it

flour wedged under too long fingernails

embossed with the imprints of your unwashed sheets because you just couldn’t wait to get to sleep

you laid there though, not moving but completely awake

unsure of what came first your doubt or that phone call

kneading dough is oddly therapeutic when you’re thinking about ending things

you know it’ll just rise back up after you punch it down

but there’s only so much yeast

at one point or another it’ll get punched and stay down

then you’re left with tough bread

something that used to feed thousands but somehow fell short in your loaf pan

you punch it again, this time achieving nothing but blowing off steam

you don’t need the carbs
