The Pie

fingers in the cool silky flour
metallic scrape of cutter on china bowl
reducing rich butter to crumbs
breathing memories

the give of the dough as it's rolled
tart apple slices in the fluted white dish
honey falling in slow motion
dust of cinnamon

a small pinch of gritty white salt
laying the stretchy cover over the lumps
deftly crimping the cut edges
then making the hole

at last
smooth faintly salty scraps
one by one
for the cook
