Homemade Carbs

I bake 
the Toyota Corolla 
of homemade carbs—
Reliable, consistent,
drive away ready, regular fuel,
intermittent wiper speed included;
cruise control is an extra;
Sturdy enough 
to be wrapped in a clean cloth napkin,
tucked in a bag
next to a thermos of tea
or locally roasted coffee,
and driven to enjoy a view
so spectacular that crumbs on a shirtfront
and dirt on a bumper 
go blissfully unnoticed
because suddenly, all is simply
butter and comfort,
cinnamon and the sea.
