For those of you who know me well you know the obsession I have for waffles. I don't eat them on a regular basis because they are not the healthiest food in the world but I do treat myself at times and when I do I always eat way too much. I even plan my vacations around where waffles are being served. For my upcoming jaunt to Culver City in a little over a week, one of the first things I Googled was "waffles in Culver City." I was thrilled to find two spots right across street from the hotel. So, in keeping with the Become The Leaf inspiration, I've decided to become the waffle.


Come drown
yourself in buttery
softness, licking
syrupy maple
from my core.

Come devour
my crunchy
essence, biting
my sweet crevices
yearning for more.

Waffles aren't my passion though I could certainly be forced to eat one. I like the picture and the poem.
