Donut Store Blend

Donut Store Blend

Gone the way
of the phone booth

and station wagon,
the morning tradition

is dunked, or otherwise
reduced to an essence

added to the grind,
a kind of tribute.

Time-travel across
the politically correct,

wrap one in wax paper,
dribble jelly for old times' sake,

the icing so sweet
it makes your teeth hurt.
