Cake Before Sunup

The talebearer in the wasteland
pays attention to cake, its undercurrent,
the moonbeam sidewalk of batter.
The waterline (batterline) rises in the pan,
a storebought aluminum throwaway.
Cake before sunup: That’s the imperative;
even the coffeemaker understands.

Prompts: Imaginary Garden with Real Toads (compound words) and NaPoWriMo (food).

    Yes, indeed! Especially if someone else is baking it and will bring me a slice with my morning coffee. A real treat.
