Recipe to make a Fox Lass
(Day 2 of NaPoWriMo challenge)
Preheat the woods to flourishing.
Add books upon books to the pot
of her head when it is nicely soft.
The more the better. Stir and stir.
Sift in some violent incidents;
DNA disasters, familial blood.
Backslap until feral, threaten the
drunk fist. Repeat and repeat.
Add a decent splash of whimsy
to temper the coddled melancholy.
This mixture is prone to splitting
so handle gently. Knead and knead.
Sprinkle with death. A little poison
helps the development of her crust.
Add a few drops of unrequited lust
at this stage, roll out. Cut and cut.
Lastly, spread with a thin layer of friends.
Let the love she feels for them sink fully in.
Dust with sugar to sweeten the belonging.
Then the cruel part, bake until burned.
When she is casseroled long enough to hurt,
cool until frozen. Your Fox Lass is complete.
