The Comfort of Carmelized Crust






Heat sears crust
edges dark. It might
have gone badly -- but
caramelized crunch
sweetened the deal by
interrupting destruction's
efforts to leave burned,
blackened ruin.

Edges curl back
revealing tender
crumbs of mercy.

Pilgrim, pilgrim,
scatter them when you
must find your way back.
