a tribute to chocolate walnut cake

i often find, in times of great melancholy,

that what gives me the greatest strength and ease,

is the uneven chunk (hand-broken off)

of home-made choco-walnut cake.

and what’s more, when in celebration,

or in a state of great elation,

life and i are much at peace

and all the more so for a piece (hand-broken off)

of walnut cake that’s chocolaty.

and when i’m writing late at night,

or feeling lonely – but a bite

of dry or gooey, uneven slices,

full of walnutty surprises,

does delight.
