The Confectioner's Wife



she is the confectioner's wife
and when he is gone
she prances naked in his kitchen
  in the drippings of the glazes
and the dust of the flours
sampling herself with every pastry
reading herself into his recipes
playing with herself in his apron
 a palette of fruit stains

she goes wild
in the batters
her own sugary dreams
flow readily

she is the confectioner's confection
 full of candied sauces & crazy jellies

and, little does he realize
that every luscious
crueller&crumbcake&every warmmuffin,
every turnover&pie
gets it true sweet taste
                                                       from her.
