It’s Always Time for Cake

It’s always time for cake,
he would placate himself
by stating, and then bake
another festive torte –
his forte: a tuttii frutti

layered sponge with half
a quart of just the sort
of caramel and orange
icing that went well with
his blue periwinkle plate.

Taking breaks and slicing
pieces was a great way
to abate a sorrow:
you never had to wait
to celebrate until tomorrow.
