sunday scribblings no 265: cake

tropical tricolour cake

soothingly simple we sifted first
just as the receipe said to
observers would hardly have noticed

next, the mixing of ingredients
sanguine stars in separate spheres
soothingly simple we sifted first

pleasure paupers silver spoons in
orderly fashion we blended our ingredients
just as the receipe said to

closer we channel the temp and timer
once the cake is cooked we’re delightfully done
observers would hardly have noticed
