{Poetry} Icing

20140129-205324.jpg
A vision built of sugar
And dressed with candy flowers
A lost girl’s calavera
Tooth achingly passionate and full of wonder
Drawing me to your alter for a closer look

Letter by sculpted letter, a digital song
Each word, a rosette of heart flutter cream
Each turn of phrase more mouthwatering and illusory than the last
But treasured and stored for later

Each bite
convinced me and its maker both
Of beautiful promises strung together like crafted candy pearls

Offered meal after empty meal
pink and white and perfectly dressed

Until
Lips glued shut in protest
Of one more hollow spoonful
I- parched and disenchanted-

Crave nothing more than the earthy, meaty flavors
Of something tangible and toothsome
