Baking Brings Few Surprises


Washing

my batter bowl

   gingerly

always remembering

a busted bread bowl

   irreplaceable 

like the piece of me

that’s chinked off


Wishing

(protecting my bowl)

   that piece of me   

could be mixed in batter

ingested with these cupcakes

   beginning

to find its way back

through my belly
