Slip into a
chocolate torte

Not the kind you
find in court

Hazelnuts make up
the crust

Have a slice
you really must

Coconut manna
medjool dates

Make it creamy
sweet to taste

Cocoa powder and
crunchy nibs

It’s all mine
I call dibs


As soon as I posted my last Quadrille for the dVerse Poets Pub prompt, this one popped into my head. The picture is of the dairy-free, gluten-free chocolate hazelnut torte my son and I made for my birthday last week. So yummy!
