I’m Baking Cookies with Her

I’m Baking Cookies with Her

My dough is coated in qualms
Then rolled in crunchy
Bits of resentment.
It is over-processed and has
An unappealing chemical aftertaste.
No amount of aspartame can
Conceal its bitterness,
So I gag on every bite.
I do not expect it to provide nourishment.
It is merely caloric sustenance
While we remodel the kitchen.
