Pink Candles Flare On A Rose Decked Cake (Before Dripless Candles)

pink candles flare on a rose decked cake
how quickly you must wish so the buttercream
roses won't taste like wax.

looking back, under the duress of this

how could you know what wish to make?
maybe the way it's all turned out

depends on that

as much as on anything else.
let fresh cakes be ordered thundered

the king or queen

in a diamond anniversary epiphany
trying to make up finally

for all the wishes made imperfectly

just to not ruin the frosting.
