2am-

the charred remains of my burnt tarts

squat miserably on the oven tray,

the sorry sight of my over-ambition.

 

Dressing the better of the batch up in doily and pretty paper bases,

I distract myself well from the brown bastards

who overstayed their welcome in the heat of the oven.

They are only sugar, flour, cream & eggs, 

I tell me, yet 

more than wasted ingredients

i feel the helplessness of

elapsed time never to 

return.
