Poems and Hungry Ghost Bread
While some folks claim that the bakery’s just an elaborate front for a vanity press, it IS true that one of our (unofficial) mottos is: “$6 a poem and you get a loaf, free”.
Most regular customers have noticed that on the backside of our bread schedules are poems, because as Roque Dalton wrote,
“Poetry, like bread, is for everyone.”
If you enjoy reading the bread poems, there are more on our website,
and there’s also a nice collection, paired with photos, in a book
entitled Camarata Non-Obscucra.
