Writer’s Digest PAD Day 19 calls for a “Burn” poem. Brûlée means burn, so I went with it..
You are a sweet
Vanilla-y and soft on the inside.
Your outsides have been burned
by an expert pyro-technician.
She has left you hard and dark
but I see the warm saccharine below
I cracked you, gently, with care,
and now reap the benefits.
