Beautiful Pie

Amazingly, given all
the ugliness
in the world,
You radiate–
at least most
of the time,
And if I could,
I’d give you a taste
of Lois the Pie Queen’s

So, what I think I should
have said,
before I said what I did
is simply that
a crumb of pie
is better than
a spoon of (you there,
fill in the blank).

Inside makes outside
The spark, a flame
within; beautiful
is only worth as much
when you let go
and pretend.

So order a slice for here,
and one or two
to go,
and call old Sally Mae–
there’s pie for sale
down at Lois’ place–
ala mode.

Have you been?
