A memory... Days that taste like sugar,

Days that taste like sugar

-by helensink

A memory...

Days that taste like sugar,

Summer on my lips

Summer on my lips, applied like a sheen of cherry gloss,

hips swaying, clutching the bowl

a glass earth spinning on its axis

fragile

against the whisk's mini hurricanes

line the baking tray with sheets,

clean and white as washing

breezed and uncrumpled

(like an airy cake)

ready to be stained

by buttery fingerprints

left like breadcrumbs

at the breakfast crime scene

glaze the cake with syrup

as if sunscreen,

protect it's floury skin

from oven sun.

drop the last crumbs

on the kitchen floor

like confetti

and the dog will scoop them up gracefully

like wedding flower girl.
