knowledge is sweet

A draft to fit Mary’s sketch¬†prompt and Karin’s metaphor MTB at d’verse.

come hungry

look over menu

choose course;

catch waft of

fresh-baked aroma

from academic ovens;

instructor waits tables

invites scholars to

taste new pastry;

subject served warm

on gleaming plate

with notes on napkins;

admire textually

outlined layers

then dive in!

chew slowly to savor

and file in memory

to enjoy again later;

swallow with hot beverage

of cafe experience,

sweetened with

cream of delight.
