Can you get that?
Those crumbs? Corner-lip licking
All teeth and gums

What can you taste?
Is it salty? Slippery smacking
All rich and malty

How do you take it?
Two sugars and milk? Coffee-breath bitter
Throat-coating silk

Can you hear that too?
Hot springboard toasting. Quick, get the butter
Gold oily boasting

See how it drips now?
‘Tween your knuckles it sits. Tea-towel grease staining
Slick bounce of lips

Can you see that?
Velvet yolk hiding. Tummy-growl tease me
Silver and gold gliding

Watch how you feel now,
Dancing morning light. The fast-breaking ritual
To start a day right.
