Mallorca Day

Yeast, flour, sugar, water.
It’s Mallorca-making day.
I could call call it “Mallorca Monday”
Which alliterates nicely, except that
Today is Saturday, which alliterates with
“Someone’s swiftly making mallorcas,”
Which doesn’t quite sparkle.

I’ve made the pre-ferment, and will next
Make the dough. Then the big weighing and rounding and rolling and buttering and doweling and spiraling and buttering again and proofing and finally baking and then
It’s Mallorca day.
