Wedding Cake

Day 21, PAD Challenge. A "second thoughts" poem.

perhaps, after all was said
and done, a simple affair
would have been best,

bereft of flowers garlanding the
aisles, the crisp linens shrouding
the tables, the reckoning

as long as a hospital bill, and
me in ivory and you in black,
perfectly topping that multi-

tiered confection of sugar,
butter, eggs, flour, royal and
almond icing, surely a cake to be

dreamt upon, sliced with a
serrated blade, placed into
tiny boxes, white, beribboned
