Pass the pastry

Somebody was celebrating mornings
but I forgave them.
I opted for pastry over hopefulness
and mentally traced the map
from where I walked in youth
to where I found my footing now
and without dropping too many crumbs,
laughed with my mouth full.
Somebody was venerating the past
but I forgave them.
