Poetry would be comprised entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes, pies, and petit fours if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Express what meter and rhythm cannot with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet desserts from Vanilla Bean Desserts, offering home delivery to the greater Halifax area.
