Cakes of Love


Coconut macaroons she sold the nice little girl at the cake shop,
I was eating macaroons every day, but Sundays when the shop
shut and I pined for Monday. My sister said I was in love with
the shop assistant, which I angrily denied I never spoke to her
except placing my order of seven coco macaroons and I avoided
looking at her. Everything comes to an end one day she wasn´t
there so I didn´t bother asking for my macaroons, bought a loaf
instead… But coconuts followed me around in Jamaica I used to
drink its milk early in the morning before going on board to start
the tedious work of making breakfast for a sullen crew and I was
smelling of fragrance of love made in nights of succulence
Years roll on bloody unstoppable; whatever I do there is always
be a boring Sunday, followed by the promises a Monday brings.
Fifty years later I met a woman of full years her father had had
a coconut farm in Congo and like me she love macaroons.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
