Street corner: Capitola, California-
Passersby gape in horror
watching in disbelief
as, swallowed by a grotesque fabric cupcake,
a woman writhes in hellish torment-
lovely legs kicking spasmodically
as the creature slowly devours
her head and shoulders!
She kicks her pretty heels and spins around
in a panic dance of hopeless desperation,
muffled cries smothered
as she is digested, cell by cell!
Soon, no stifled screams can escape
the oversized cupcake cocoon,
just gagging gurgles
from behind an enigmatic cupcake sign…
Helpless, I look on with the mesmerized crowd.
I want to rescue those pretty legs
But I am paralyzed with fear!
Mortified by the unspeakable menace
of Evil Cupcake Demon!
