Rabbit and Rose

beaded rabbit


The sun casually reclined across

the breakfast table, loosing sparks

from the assorted preserve jars

gathered in the center. Inspired, I took

the orange marmelade and slathered it

over you as if you were an oven-hot

English muffin awaiting adornment;

then we began to feast.

I kept some

of the crumbs we left behind; occasionally

I'll nibble one, for the sake of sun and

oranges and you.
