pie eating contest at the jefferson school, washington, d.c. 1923
in honor of national pie day
i am proud to announce that
on one fine summer’s day
i was declared
the women’s speed pie eating contest winner
at the local fire department’s picnic
just a chocolate pie and a competitive spirit
“things that really matter are the things that gold can’t buy,
so let’s have another cup o’ coffee and let’s have another piece o’ pie.”

summer pie eating in ann arbor.
it’s kind of a sport.
“so the pie isn’t perfect? cut it into wedges.
stay in control, and never panic.”
used the berries we picked
to make a strawberry pie for breakfast
what a fine way to begin a day.
“to whoever invented fantasy, redwood trees, and pie for breakfast; well done.”

a wonderful new business in my town called,
‘why not pie?’
it’s a virtual bakery
creates homemade pies
for pickup or delivery.
she’ll try most any flavor you request
using locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible.
this is really a win-win situation in my eyes
and i can’t wait to try one.
if you wish to make an apple pie from scratch,
you must first invent the universe.
