tiny dwarves grow out of the frosting

Tiny dwarves grow out of the frosting
looking as though they’re wax candles,
but they’re not –
red wizard’s hats and blue santa coats,
blue santa pants and red boots.
The frosting is waves and they are swimmers in it,
multiplying like mold.

A man with a samurai hair-do
cuts the cake for show – with a kitana –
in one thud.
He sells everything there but his clothes.
He doesn’t know about the dwarves
and the dwarves don’t know about him.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
