How Should We Cut the Cake In Heaven?

My friends prepare a table for me,
a place to sit,
when other places won’t do.

the ghosts of dead pets,
old lovers –
growing on me,

the faces of my enemies are
obscured by plastic flowers.

  1. “They let you have cake in heaven?”
    Yeah, but it’s only metaphorical cake, unfortunately.
    “You too can lose weight with my new, revolutionary, food poetry diet! Ask me how!”
    and, dreamlistener, that’s the best possible response. Spontaneous snorts are wonderful.

  2. So Heaven is Metaphorical too?

    Whew…I was getting worried there.

    I figure all I have to look forward to is a this from God…how did dream listener put it?
    oh, “spontaneous snort”
