Cinnamon

today

i will make a batch of apple cinnamon shortbread

the kind that will melt in my mouth

without resistance

as the oven warms up

i will watch my neighbors walk their dogs on leash

couples with jackets of the same color walking together

accompanied by the music of their inner resistance

i will place the shortbread

on my favorite blue square cookie plate

with dark brown borders

beside my huge maroon tea cup

together

they make a lovely pair

mismatched

good together

the shortbread melts in my mouth

without resistance i

give myself to the moment

the cinnamon warms my heart
