A Mouthful of Cake

Brides and grooms

shove fists full of white icing

into each other’s mouths.

The video implores,

“Eat cake.

Be sweet. Be sweet.”

When there was no bread

She said

“Eat cake.

Be sweet. Be sweet.”

Dates and sugar

Coconuts and mangos

Arrive in the boats

The sailors say

“Eat cake.

Be sweet. Be sweet.”

When this life is done with me

That may be the time to

have my cake

and eat it too.
