“It is impossible not to love someone who makes toast for you.” Nigel Slater

But What Of The Edges?

Sometimes it's the prosaic that 
carries deep meaning, like toast,
so simple no matter its demeanour,
pale, burned, hot or cold or whatever
one might put on it other than butter,
a condimental thing.

But what of the edges? 
Do you push that boundary?
Do you spread to the crust or do
you stop just inside?
