My Zippy's Jello Cheesecake Square

Liz, the birthday girl, bit my corner.
Kari nibbled. Jess pecked. Trey sampled.
Alan chomped, Eric gored, Jared mauled,
Todd stripped off jello
Mark ravaged cream and cake
Joe devoured crust.

The container, clothes pinned, hangs from the wire
Crumbs scattered,
Whipped cream splattered,
Sticky red bits…
Party over, I hug Liz and head home
But stop by Zippy's.

She rests on my plate as I stab my fork
Through the sugar clouds, the red glassy sky,
The thick creamy stratum,
The sturdy, resolved… end
