Sorry about the misnomer Maryrose. Thanks for your reply.
Your poem sounds interesting--I'd like to read it. Judging by your mentions of it perhaps the title might be modified to WEDDING CAKE CREAM DREAM. Feel free to use it if you like.
Is your poem available online?
Thank you, for the title suggestion. Reminds me of Herb Albert's album "Whipped Cream and Other Delights."
I have submitted the poems to the New Yorker and Poetry Foundation. I will be submitting the whole book, "Conversations with a Dead Lover" after I return, in October, from reading for The Poetry Center in Chicago.
