Poetry Brittle

let's make poetry brittle all afternoon.
use buttery words, the best ingredients.
oh toffee coloured is the need to resume

making rhymes or not
and all the images you've got
spilled out in hard candy array.

oh confectionary roses,
isinglass through the looking glass ways
into an Easter Egg panorama

and pirate forays on the coast of
all that can be imagined
on an ordinary day.

lets whip up something memorable
layered with strawberries
or the milky way.
