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.

 Cake

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

exactly

wanted

what you

wanted

exactly was

wanting

 

You sure we talkin’ bout cake still?

 I think everyone can relate to this feeling.
