The Pride Before, 17 (230.)

Who knew
that cookies and hazelnut goo
tasted so good together?
The goo-ification of anything
is a miraculous development.
Who was the first
to crush fruit into paste?
Jams and jellies, currants, tarts,
sweet Jesus of sugary foods,
thy parents guard the cosmic pantry
of desserts and good things!
A green thumb is great,
but a baker’s thumb
is even better.
There are pages and pages
of treats in that cookbook
that just sits on my kitchen counter,
and it’s
about time
I followed the trail
of homemade recipes
to my own pile of sweetmeats.
