Let us sit down soon to eat

Standard

foodLet us sit down soon to eat

with all those who haven’t eaten;
let us spread great tablecloths,
put salt in the lakes of the world,
set up planetary bakeries,
tables with strawberries in snow,
and a plate like the moon itself from which we can all eat.
For now I ask no more than the justice of eating.

~Pablo Neruda
