What you like now?
We have some pie.
Forty dollars.
Yum yum yum.
What you like now?
Oh I think we have some apple.
Here you go.
Forty dollars.
What you like?
There you go.
Yum yum yum.
Forty dollars.
What you like?
Forty dollars.
What you like now?
Some tuna.
I think we don’t have some tuna today.
I think we eat it all up.
You have some pear?
Yum yum yum.
Spaghetti is all gone now.
What you like now?
We have some toast for you.
Forty dollars.
Yum yum yum.
Just pretend eat.
Just pretend.
Only pretend.
Good girl, Daddy.
Good girl.
Forty dollars.
Yum yum yum.

Quelle Grammage!
This morning, between the pages of a poetry book, I was gifted with a stranger's reading list. I am really enjoying watching these two poems of mine returning to the earth from whence they are about. 20 new #anticline poemzeens ready to collect at the #chewton dropoff. location in my profile. 
not in chewton? leave a comment and I can arrange for one to be sent to you. Coffee w Holtzmann.
