Bright, smooth, yellow curd.
Crumb crust. The perfect lemon
tart for breakfast, please.

Boston Cream Pie slice
Waits, silently, in the fridge
No one is watching

More is not always better
But big juicy melons
Oh delightful!

The picture deceives the senses
the recipe
remains a mystery.

A haiku is 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and then 5 syllables again. Just FYI:)

I am now jobless
The brownies lure me closer
Sweat pants clothe my ass

Save the guilt for things
worth being guilty about,
not simple pleasures.

I see this picture
And all I can think about
Is eating this cake
