Top-Tier Molding

by Chad M. Horn

top tier of wedding cake molds in freezer
recalling when she was a newlywed
once served as a real-wedding-crowd-pleaser
honeymoon lingerie with silver thread
a good reminder of great yesterdays
porcelain skin as taut as a drum-head
wonderful icing with caramel glaze
with cream cheese filling as smooth as mayonnaise
thread-bare sheets, but she crashes, exhausted
high praise! to cake-making gourmets!
freezer, top-tier, and marriage defrosted
vows she once screamed now echo in murmur
molding top tier serves as sad confirmer
