The Cupcake that Ate Itself

The old man lay on his carpet, his 62-year-old mouth a fountain of half-digested pastry. Black uniforms blocked the sunlight. A woman crouched and took pictures. By “woman”, I mean me. I’d read two of the man’s books as a teen: The Eviscerati and The Cupcake that Ate Itself.

In case you're wondering, the dead author favored German cupcakes. Couldn't get enough of them. At the time of his death, he remained unaware of the urban dictionary entry* on German cupcakes. The same can be said for his killer.
*Warning = gross-out factor in excess of a hundred parts per million.

The sweet face of oblivion.
