On my thumbs
Not a bad thing
Sprinkling them
To make
The base for
A lovely cake

The remains
Of a delightful treat

Or in a twist of fate
The unwanted things
Left on your plate
At the end
Of something

Pieces of
Others’ mistakes
A revelation
Of taste

Trailing behind you
So you don’t lose your way
Until you find it again

For to be free of
These crumbs is
The hope
One day
