under a blitzkrieg moon

written by: Vicki Bashor

it was
originally
about the bombs,
the innuendo
of lost lives
my anxiety
her tart lemon
squares
buttery-crusted
her eyes darting

she searched
for subjects
she didn't fear
and i oppositely
crumbled inside
sweet and tender,
knowing talking
about desserts
are good last words.
