Morning Glory

The perfect muffin
has a base that is moist,
with a tender crumb
and crispy edges around its top;
two textures in one small package.
It is sweet enough
to satisfy your need for a treat
but with ample fruit, nuts,
or shredded carrots
to convince yourself
you’re having something healthy
rather than face the truth
that you’re eating cake,
for breakfast.
