Ode to My Second Cupcake


Ode to My Second Cupcake

You come from Buttercup Bake Shop
On the Upper West Side.
You sat amongst other delectable creations,
Waiting to be picked.
Your cake is golden.
Your icing –
Vanilla
with green food coloring
Added for effect.
I bite into you
As a smile spreads
across my face.
The white sprinkle balls
on your north end
Crunch between my molars,
As the sweetness of your frosting
Melts on my tongue.
Sliding down…
Making me wish
I had bought
more than
two of you.
