Confections

(2015)

I roll out the dough
sugar cookies
dusted with cinnamon
my thoughts miles away
seeing your eyes
glazed over
like spun sugar

I’ve ruined the sauce
tears dripping into the pot
ruining it like last year
how my heart
split in two
and drained out
into February

Roll me in five spice powder
drop me in hot broth
the essence of me
will fill your sinuses
so you can never forget
how hard
you might try
how hard

Your skin
was like sugar
and the cocoa dust
left on the plate
so that after you left
I wept over truffles
and your skin-
bittersweet
