              Illusions coup

Nightgown illusions baked to a brown,
Are basted with the ego of clown.
Kneeded the dough, sprinkle with flower,
Baked in a mind, on the highest power.

When served with a wine of your choice
Offered in your tenderest voice.
Lit candlelight to set shrewd shadow,
Played music of a malleable rondeau.

Warmed air with pleasant conversation,
Unveiled in this prettiest equation.
Must be tooth picked to see if it's through
And if it is, then you've baked a coup.

But flighty are the illusions of most,
They start with a boast, go out like a ghost.
Very few finish to a perfect brown,
Expressly sauced with delusions clown.

You must always check illusions coup,
For if you do not, you pay what's due.

Sy,
Constant probing of illusion
Might just add to the confusion
Let it be and let it set
And relish what it may beget
But looking from my point of view
I think you baked a poetry coup,
(As you always do)

Your poetry is wonderful

Now you've got me feeling hungry
is all I've got to say
and what I'm very hungry for
won't be satisfied with a souffle!

Well done, indeed!
