oh stop
the cinnamon is singed
on top of the baking
sour cream cake
warmth in the room
sleeps with the tree bark
smell of your neck

within the ruby dark
of my eyelids
a pleasing line of
firewater jewels
falling and sliding
down a silver string
could they be
my thoughts or tears
descending the
spiraling memory case?

believe these words -
though i did not use
the measuring cups and spoons,
stirred in walnuts instead of pecans -
the cake is baking in the oven
sprinkled with brown sugar

...
oven-warmth still bakes the cake
