family gathering – May 26


family gathering, brothers, sisters

hangers on. I slip my hand under

the tinfoil just to see, and

oops, a bit of frosting seems to

have stuck to me.


I must lick that off, otherwise

I might mess someone else

with my messy fingertips.


Really. It’s not an excuse.

How could you accuse me of

being so duplicitous…..


Hmmm. Maybe I should

just peek under there again.
