THE CRUMBLING OF THE VANILLA WAFER

Listen to the podcast. 

The sharp snap
of the sacred
the sugar, the will

bent, persuaded
by slow syrup drizzling
down from on high
your words whispered
sweet

A delicate demitasse
in a tiny tangle
napkins, ribbons
dreams

The crackle of the wrapper
a sense of a new beginning
words lying on their sides
on my outstretched palm

the structure of belief
