Rancorous Pudding – Day 15

Momma said “Rancorous Pudding”
would never be as sweet as “Lullaby”,
I wanted to disagree, but I suspected
she might be right.

Courtesy of my other halves,
this poem is for you.
Where I am, grey winds chill us,
yesterday, it rained fish and frogs.

I suspect one of you is hot,
and one of you is hungry.
I myself am cold and can’t eat anything
besides carrots and squash.

Sometimes, the gaps are obvious,
I don’t even need the knife,
but most times liquid color runs,
fills them, dries them tight.

I miss you like mascots miss their teams,
Like trees in winter miss their leaves,
Like an actress missing her cue,
Like the sky misses its blue.

  1. Wonderful poem–sad, but with some slightly humorous lines. I like it.
