Written for: Poetic Asides – November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 5
For today’s prompt, write a self-destruct poem.
This poem is a decadent soufflè
wondering how high it can rise.
Tiptoe ’round kitchen, watch as
it floats, a chocolate crown.
Place pan on counter.
A noise . . .
to a soupy
round chocolatey disk.
Missed again. Why bother?
All precaution taken, not
to shake or awaken until
ready to eat. Expect sweet defeat.
