red velvet cake
The
fork is raised,
red velvet cake poised–
a willing sacrifice to
tastebuds’ salivary crave
that will be content
with nothing
less.

 

 

Today’s offering is in the Joseph’s Star poetic form.
Sarah is today’s host of dVerse.Β  Sarah says:
Tonight, I want you to bring a little red into your poem.

  1. Sounds perfect … but maybe a bit to heavy in the end.

      I had “cave” there first and changed it to “crave” Red does get the blood moving for sure.

      To be honest, it tastes like chocolate cake to me. At the same time when I read the prompt it was the first thing I thought of! Not that chocolate cake is bad. It’s actually very good πŸ™‚
