For Tom it started at 30.
A baby, a business, bread
always to pull from the oven.
Rick asks logistics
filler or intel
how important are the machines,
do you know the formulas?
Recipes you mean?
Yes all the pastry gets pulled
the night before.
Keep the spirals fingertip clean,
crimp the edges with a fork.
Is hell an overcoat and tiny dog,
a downtown bistro with no meatless salads.
Or are you a lounge singer on a cruise ship
who passes all the primo fishing spots
and never gets to dock - -
