Mom,

I have some unfortunate news.
I ate the last cookie,
the lopsided one
from that last batch
you made
for yourself
yesterday.
Sorry.

It was yours to savor
and I stole it,
kind of like I stole
your thirties,
and those black shoes,
from your closet
for myself.
For me,

forgive the indiscretion?
(about the cookie, I mean…)
Incidentally,
I notice
when there are two –
one for me
one for you
(cookies, that is…)

For me,
you’ve given up so much:
footwear,
decades,
yourself –
and now baked goods.
Incidentally,
I’ve savored
All of it.

So thanks.
Love you,
From me.
