Catherine Daly

MacArthur Park

Diana Ross: boiled icing
tinted sea foam green,

a green goddess, dressing;

Donna Summer: Swan brand cake flour.
Swan matches.
Swans swim on the pond in MacArthur Park,

melting in the dark
like Rita Dove’s Grape Sorbet,
Sherbet, Midwest.

Cream of tartar gels and sets
batter foaming like meringue.

Love’s ovens, angel food,

velvet cake takes
a bottle of red
white chocolate: sugar.

Drink warm punch

7up cake
texas sheet cake

cake walk.
