Portrait of a Baker

IMG_0425 Break up the butter in the bowl

once more, a diversion, a

delusion, a hopeless ardor.

Fast fingers work cool

to keep down the warmth

that’s there with its longing

and existential angst.

But a moment

slips

and the quick hands skip,

throwing all the effort on a

wasted hip.

An insatiable desire,

for the sweet yes

one aspires.

The fruit clings to their stone,

IMG_0434like a love with no home.

Press the dough flat

keep the bits to yourself,

and with sugar, so nice, all

arranged and devised, hell,  you just

might  belie that what won’t be

denied.IMG_0442

  1. I’ ll tell you something: a beautiful delicious tart like that is worth pining after.

  2. And funnier still that the large picture of the baker’s side did not load until after I commented, so now the “tart” takes on a new meaning.
