Breakfast Disaster

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #592

Words:  change, culture, proud, me, first, realized, owned,
        time, else, here, sorry, dictionary

Sorry.  I realize now
that I did not check
date and time for
expiration first,
or else I would not
have served you this
highly cultured yogurt.
Not proud.  Your facial
color has changed to
dictionary's definition 
of pea-green.  Next time 
you breakfast with me here, 
a home-cooked meal 
will be waiting. I own
a waffle iron.  Do you
like waffles?  Ooops!  Bad
timing; I'll get the bucket.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
