A Delicious Escape

Immersing Oneself in the Process

Amber honey flows out from the jar.

Butter gleams with the shine of its thick new coating.

Creaming them together, I get lost in the luscious pulse.

Dreaming of a world where I can sink down into it -

Ease my body into the smooth, sweet mixture,

Feel the butter melt into my skin.

Getting my rubber spatula, I

Hold onto the dream for another moment.

I imagine,

Just briefly, I

Know what it's

Like to have this concoction folded over

Me like my sheets at


Oh to

Play in the airy dreamland of my thoughts.

Quietly, I

Reach for the

Single most intoxicating

Thing in the room and

Uncap the

Vanilla extract.

When will I again come up off my

X-axis like this?

You just don't understand until you feel the

Zest of the process.
