Give me a Piece of your Fat Cherry Pie

Words like custard tarts, words like trifles
Words I can use like pasty marzipan glitter
Hot dolly gingermen, marshmallow phoenix
Pecking at chocolate grain, explosion of hot caramel
Jellybell, jelly whispers, jelly pain
Walloping custard on confit of duck
Creme de la creme de la endless digestion
Minty and crispy and sullen –

Outside the restaurant
Fatten the glutton
A raggedy badgirl  sniffs and malingers.
