A Hard Bagel

Plain. Ordinary.
Hardened after some time and
Exposed to the air.

Just this exposure
Is all it took to rob soft
From this fresh bagle.

One by one, other
Bagels are selected from
The box sitting there.

The longer this one
Sits out, the less appealing
It becomes to all.

And it sits and sits,
Until it has given up
Hope of selection.

Suddenly hoisted
The bagel is dunked headfirst
Into my coffee.

And is soft again.
