Biscuit Bummer

Written for:  Poetics Aside PAD November 2020 Challenge - Day 5

"For today’s prompt, write a ruin poem. The poem could be about visiting some ancient ruins. Or you could write about ruining a situation or ruining a recipe (I've done both plenty of times in my life). But perhaps you're like me and can appreciate the beauty in things others considered ruined. Either way, write a ruin poem today!"


Biscuits it would be!
I was in a hurry.
Had everything I'd need
including wildflower honey
to drizzle over top, but see–
the dough would not agree
to roll out properly.
Tossed in the oven though sickly
they looked.  Spied on counter, oh jeez,
there sat forgotten milk.  Biscuit failure for me.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
