Wicked Word Wednesday: Confectionery

If some confectioners were willing
To let the shape announce the filling,
We’d encounter fewer assorted chocs,
Bitten into and returned to the box.

– Ogden Nash

One thought on “Wicked Word Wednesday: Confectionery

  1. I run home to the confectionery of your smile.
    Each time you laugh out loud
    it is like a soft bun with icing
    or a cream-filled roll that
    gushes when I bite into it
    getting on my chin
    never enough of you
    to get all of you into my mouth
    in one sitting
