Dorothea is always baking bread and cakes.

  Her rump is two bags of wheat flour.  
  She has fruit-loaf breasts.  
  Her hips are brown bread in long pans,  
  her feet, ridges of Danish pastry,  
  her sex a dark little doughnut  
  with apple-sauce filling.  
  Her body is a great kindness  
  that tastes of vanilla, nuts, coconut  
  and almond brittle.  
  --“If you are afraid, my boy,  
  I’ll only touch you with my lady-finger.”
