December 30th
2017

Today I saw my son
take the wheel of the car
for his first
lengthy drive.

Today I smelt chocolate
spilt and dripping upon
my car-mat
floor.

Today I heard
humming and singing
of tires
upon pavement.

Today I tasted
sugary sweetness
rubbery resistance
until…pop!

Today my funny bone
was touched, rattled, and shaken
until
my stomach could take no more!
