Tonight, I wish I never ate dinner. You left
them not in a jar, but in a bowl in the shelf
that you kept after snacks. I never even
remembered they’re there until I got hungry
while staying awake and writing about you
and your sweet smile. That’s how I forget
how bland work could get – perhaps bitter
perhaps sour – perhaps that dinner I cooked.
I went back to my computer, crumbling
over the cookies crumbling on the keyboard.
Among all opened tabs, I went on to finish
what I’m posting. I closed all others.
This cursor blinks with me. I type how there’s
nothing else I can say. Perhaps, bake more?
