cereal.

Sometimes I just write whatever comes out…this one happened to be about cereal (and form and function).

Form
Form as function
Small wheat nodules
Lightly frosted
Tumbling
Into a bowl
Covered with milk
A delectable start
To the day
Day after day
The box lightens
Form and function
Collide
Slipping past larger brothers
Broken crumbs and
Loose wheat particles
Make their way
A bowl of cereal
Either way
But a soggy mess
With no appeal
It has changed
The function remains
But not if it remains
Uneaten
The function contained
Only if
The form
remains.
