Calorie Restriction Cantata (day two)

Day two of writing a poem a day for a month in honor of National Poetry Month in the USA.

Calorie Restriction Cantata

Impossibly low chant, from the bowels like Tibetan monks: Gouda cheeeeeeese
First overtone: buttered beeeeeans
Second overtone: strawberries with creeeeam

Wind section: fresh warm bread, marmalade spread
Strings: a Cuban Manhattan, rum like satin
Chimes, like children running and laughing: Macaroons! Macaroons! Macaroons!
