the disappearing light of day

i sat with a bagel
yesterday
and let it teach me
all it knew

every curve
held a lesson
each bitĀ of onion
contained a truth
the top showed me things
the bottom could not
yet the bottom
shared a wiser view

today
i discovered
these teachings were lost
perhaps they were
only a dream

in sadness
and silence
and solitude
i ate it
but honestly, it ate me too
