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.
