a banana, peanut butter, & two slices of wheat bread (a koan)

a banana, peanut butter, & two slices of wheat bread (a koan)

"Used with moderation, a first-class verse is an excellent and unusually fast-working form of heat therapy."
Seymour--An Introduction, J. D. Salinger


it was there
he paused

considering the first bite
of the peanut butter & banana sandwich

at what point to take the first bite?

& if he changed today
would the entire world spin differently

then?

(the question was like sitting
in bright early summer sunshine)
