Cookies ‘n’

Cream Cheesecake to

 

follow a

porterhouse as

 

dry as my

mother’s last breath;

 

relentless

yelping pagers

 

we’d been told

to bring to our

 

tables to

serve as fanfare

 

for our meals’

preparedness,

 

electric

brass concerto

 

grosso of

the appetites

 

so soon to

be requited.
