Sweetness In Despair

Dressed in white


vicious, merciless


butcher their prey by day

leaving their victims

drained of life, colorless, no sweetness

to make you cry out in joy, to dazzle your eye or dance upon your tongue

their embalmed victims look alive

but they never really were

Sad Raw Cakes

untouched, unloved on bone china plates.
