BIRTHDAY CAKE.

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on May 16, 2008 0 Comments

His mother
Enjoys her
Birthday cake;
Each tiny

Chocolate
Crumb and flake,
And childlike
She leaves some

Evidence
Behind on
Her aging
Lips and jaw

For all to see;
Discreetly
Her daughter
Wipes such

Evidence
Away with
One soft touch
Of napkin

Across those
Smiling lips.
