I have a hard time telling differences.
Like the difference between
a crumb or a loaf. A feast or morsel. 

I’ve fallen for the same trick since birth.
A sleight of hand and a hopeful imagination 
itching to pull a loaf out of a crumb?

You see, what’s obvious to you isn’t to me.
I was taught a loaf for you and a crumb for me.
In childhood everything was bigger than it was.

I’ve lived with illusions that crumbs and morsels 
are the sizes of loaves and feasts.
