Wild Yeast

I put my hand on your smooth dough

Peel your clothes off, then mine

Crust against crust

I murmur moist words into your ear

And watch it rise

Pain au levain, sourdough, masa madre

Comforting food

Warm, aroma-full and fresh

Pure organic flavour, no additives

Just watch

Leaven and flavour the perfect loaf

Or shall I say love?
