Thoughts on a Bagel

Meghan Punschke

A bagel is so much more than a hole
Every man and child should question its goal…

Is the dough of the bagel such a tender treat?
Or is it the hole in a bagel that is the real meat?

Unilateral is not a word that can describe
A bagel. For, it is not the dough that provides

Elliptic illusion, but the hole that assigns
Irrefutable fusion between the specified

Order of those worlds, both known and unknown.
Understandably perfect— A whole of its own.
