Better Than Sex?

This might be debatable for some people. For others, you know who you are, there’s only one true answer to the question posed above…Cake. A simple, but evocative, poem with the same name is shown below.


by Noah Eli Gordon


Look, you

want it

you devour it

and then, then

good as it was

you realize

it wasn’t

what you



what you


exactly was



You sure we talkin’ bout cake still?

 I think everyone can relate to this feeling.
