Cake and Punishment


Hot moist angel food cake.
Melty icing
Sticky
On the edge of little fingers.
STOP!
fix the cake
Adrenaline pumps
Ears ring
I’m a little taller than the cake
I turn
And run
Sit in grandma’s living room
Grandpa leans back
With feet reclined
The carpet chocolate brown
Small hands touch
Carpet itchy and soft
Fingers smell of cake
