Crème Brûlée

Writer’s Digest PAD Day 19 calls for a “Burn” poem. Brûlée means burn, so I went with it..

You are a sweet

French dessert.

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.
