Featured Poem – May, 2019

Red Velvet Cupcakes

with almond cream cheese icing,
still tenderly breathing from the oven.

Crunch of the sugared cake crust
in the midst of sweet softness.
Red from the cochineal bugs,
unabashedly and gloriously fake
like stripes of fuchsia in a millennial’s hair.

A classy surprise, pleased
by its own display.

I choose this poem today because I am going to a millennial’s birthday party tomorrow!
