Can't Put the Pen Down…

Big Bang Bread


There were only supposed to be twelve spiral arms
of cinnamon and raisins.
Then my doughy universe began
to expand, in a big bang boom it bloomed over
the top of the pan and the distance between
raisins increased exponentially,
like far-flung stars hurtling apart until
the heat overwhelmed the live, growing yeast
of creation and baked them into place.
And that is why, instead of a dozen
cinnamon rolls, we have an enormous,
if sparsely populated,
loaf of raisin bread.
Big Bang Bread.
It’s not a theory anymore.

  1. Update required … the Big Bang has now been replaced by the Instantaneous Expansion Theory … whatever the Hell that is.

    • Lol! Okay, I’m workin’ on it. Actually, I think I saw a picture that summed up the ‘Instantaneous Expansion Theory’ the other day on Facebook… It showed the wreckage left behind when someone used a faulty pressure canner in their kitchen! What a mess!

  2. I’d like to taste this phenomenal bread. 🙂
