NaPoWriMo #21 – Assorted Biscuit Tin

Chocolate wafers snap
at the shortbread’s body odour
that takes up precious space

and sugar biscuits mete out
a punishment of diabetic dandruff
for the cookies’ gooey insouciance.

Raspberry tarts tittle and tattle
with fellow butter Maries
on the scandals of common digestives,

while iced gems wear their
colourful caps proudly. Don’t lose
your hats now, little boys.

We belong to nowhere,
but the littlest fingers.

We belong to nowhere,
but the most comfortable
black hole –
