State of Emergency

d’Verse Poets Pub – Quadrille #91 – Keep

http://dversepoets.com


She stashed some peanut butter cups
and foil-wrapped kisses in her car seat –
leftovers from a night of trick-or-treating.
She is keeping them for an emergency, she told me.
I drop her at school, pull into traffic,
And feel a chocolate emergency coming on.
