The Jelly on Your Toast

We should like to moan a sonnet,
tie onto a triolet a pretty bonnet -
offer it to you with some petit pantoum -
or scat like Ella - boom
some hiphop villanella - perform
something to cool or warm
you, as you pleased:
to put you at your ease,
give you the flavor
you might savor
be the jelly on your toast.
We'd love to be the riot-
ously pleasurable diet
you consume in your preferred venue.
But first you gotta see we’re on the menu.
