in response to the Poetbay theme and tribute, November 2022

ode to Phillis Wheatley

should there a hymn arise
to the breaking of day and
to the breaking of bread
should there a morsel be

or a moment for to spare
perhaps the masterís bark
or lash or even stare shall
forever be the only mark

to witness this one breath
and to forever no more be
