Warm Croissants

Embittered, weary of living,
An acre of sand in your shoes,
A hatful of indifference
Trying to cover a sky-wide broken heart?

It’s nothing that a warm croissant
With butter–the butter is important–
Won’t cure.

I like to peel them like a fragrant onion,
Each new layer steaming with new beginnings.

Eat it very slowly and imagine your nemesis
in ill-fitting granny panties,
a tuxedo jacket and lime green leggings.

Don’t you feel better?

  1. Indeed, I feel much better…..can I have additional butter on each bit as I peel it ? ( also an impossible hat…something out of Dr. Seuss, maybe)
