there was some comfort
in not quite understanding
what was material
to a different point of view


penstemon blossoms suspended like clouds
above a hunter green-maroon landscape
mounted neatly to the neutral concrete
and black on bleached black asphalt
by a frame of hard geometric limestone,
slabs finishing tan-brown rough hewn
mortared walls


she wore a beret of burgandy fluff
set well back on her head,
one sharp angle cut tress
polishing her cat-eye framed glasses,
as she anchored against
a terrier's strain,
unaware of the raised bed occupants

black intentions of eternity
hover
pin prick track lights insinuate
intimacy
privacy
plate glass aquarium
of trees swaying
cars swarming
and a campus-castle
filled with treasure


rich roast
vanilla
ribbons of cream
surrender to
stopwatch rotations;
cash flow eddies

They’ll never find us in here
You don’t scare me
They’re going to get you
Everyone knows you did it
Have you been fighting again?”
This is all your fault.”
There’s something weird going on here
You’re to blame for this

early 13c., "flat or comparatively thin mass of baked dough," from Old Norse kaka "cake," from West Germanic *kokon- (source also of Middle Dutch koke, Dutch koek "a cake, gingerbread, dumpling," Old High German huohho, German Kuchen "a cake, a tart"). Not believed to be related to Latin coquere "to cook," as formerly supposed. Replaced its Old English cognate, coecel.

What man, I trow ye raue, Wolde ye bothe eate your cake and haue your cake? ["The Proverbs & Epigrams of John Heywood," 1562]

Extended mid-15c. to any flat, rounded mass. From early 15c. extended to "a light composition of flour, sugar, butter and other ingredients baked in any form." To take the cake "win all, rank first" (often ironic) is from 1847, American English; piece of cake "something easy" is from 1936. The let them eat cake story is found in Rousseau's "Confessions," in reference to an incident c. 1740, long before Marie Antoinette, though it has been associated with her since c. 1870; it apparently was a chestnut in the French royal family that had been told of other princesses and queens before her.
