The slice I ate I want it back
Those crumbs I swept up
I’d like my share again
I can still taste it like it was
The memory by itself is delicious
Each bite was a small miracle
Both nourishing and sweet
I wish I had saved just a little bit
I improvised; I never remembered.
Now it’s your turn to be driven;you’re the one who demands to know.
Angelic Dynamo! Ventriloquist of the Blue!
While beachward creeps the shark-swept Spanish Main
By what conjunctions do the winds appoint
Its apotheosis, at last⎯the hurricane!
The house was just twinkling in the moon light,
And inside it twinkling with delight,
Is my baby bright.
