Ode to a Donut, Opus #5 (opus spicatum)
Is a donut from a box
purchased at a supermarket
a true donut?
Is a baked donut
not just some shadow
of reality but the real thing?
The answer lies within
yet more questions.
Do they bring you joy?
Do they hearken back to a time of
happiness and sweetness and youth?
Do they lighten your burden?
Do they delight or inspire or please?
If you can answer "yes" but once to any of these,
then you have your ultimate answer.
