the cream puffs lie scattered on the plate.


i lie under the table.

i can smell their sweet loneliness.

lab on floor

longing and desire overcome me,

and you try and tempt me with a milkbone?

lab on floor face close-up

desire is not like that!

Truth cannot be bribed.

but even cream puffs are no match for You.
