Monday’s Loaf – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“…. you really can’t guess just by looking whether a particular mould staring at you is good or bad.” Healthy Canning

Monday's Loaf

Monday's loaf,
soft and moist,
became Tuesday's toast,
became Wednesday's crumbs
for filling the feast of poultry,
but that last slice of two,
somewhat stiff and firm,
had just a tinge of blue.

  1. Our well water in Edinburg was fantastic! You test the water before buying and then periodically. I don’t know what you do to fix it.

  3. I’ve had this experience many times. (Literal moldy bread, not moldy bread as a metaphor for whatever sorry state I happen to be in. 😉 )

  6. The mold in that picture is giving me an inquisitive look. It must have seen a lot since Monday and wants to see more 😊

  7. Oh no 👎 I throws the whole loaf away if 1 bread is molded. I’m picky with bread and smell bread before I eat it. If it smells sour💁🏽I throws the whole loaf in the trash. That’s just me cause my Aunt was blind and use to smell all of her food…Guess that’s the reas6

    • The science tells us that if one slice or end is gone, the whole loaf is also invisibly gone. On one slice, the greenish-black mould is actually the flower and its roots are far deeper in the bread, and spores too. One slice and I chuck it too. Best be picky I say 🙂
