Cinnamon Square

Having caught
in the emerald grey plates
Oysters and salmon
Dally to and fro in soup

Trout trills truer than ornaments
she wore in the morning
while the market wafts were up,
selling the dinner in rush

Wafers of blue in cinnamon square
washed on ripe air
Frugal trails row mustard
in remembrance of rhymed colors

Blue as in heart that pieces the platter
Gold in the mercurial heat
A little salt and pepper through the sniff
Outline aerials inked in play years
