Poetry: Cupcakes

For Leo, happy birthday!

Cupcakes are like tiny bursts of joy

We experience them in a way we don’t experience

Other kinds of treats

Something special

Perhaps because they’re individual treats

It should always be one each

Because sharing a cupcake is the most intimate thing

Closer than a kiss, it’s like splitting a soul

Or a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows

Get the rose frosting to cake ratio right

And it’s a sweetly spicy sugary overload
