Breaking of the bread

To top off the thought

floating around in his head

he broke the bread,

that Christly symbol

that had eaten him up,

and buried his soul

amongst the seagull fodder,

to be pecked and swallowed,

digested whole and forgotten,

totally lost in the detritus

of the faith that left

his soul a vacuous shadow

of it former self.
