La Decadence Incarnee

Glacage au Chocolat

License to a deliciousness the library card doesn't

sponsor--Yet my plate sits full, still dishwasher warm. In

this discovery of charm

bestowed upon by who cares, when the fork,


Is this a spoon job? I'd say this is what fingers

and napkins were for, except this

blushing that would match the cherry topping

If I was less crispy, with a succulent crunch crust

and more

milky smooth like an 'I Can't Believe it's Cake.' Wait!

We had chocolate milk yesterday, mess scrapped up this morning.

Swirled in plastic cups as a lunch drowner.

Chugged into mustached hiccups

with ham and cheese


Such swine I once was who would never take a taste of this pointed peak.

A dash to the kitchen, haste near destructive for the

chocolate syrup-- 'Just a drizzle; make Ramsey proud.

Spoiled milk I once saw as kin to a veggie,

now adored for being simply heavenly.

Willem Indigo

I spend substantial efforts diving into the unexplainable, the strange, and the bewilderingly blasphamous from a wry me, but it's a cold chaotic universe behind these eyes and at times, far beyond. I am Willem Indigo: where you wanna go?
