boiling matter

the stench of boiling matter

fills the air

and what made for salivation

now only irks a gag reflex

*

a mother too accustomed

to having her plates cleaned

awaits her child’s mouth

to say “aah”

*

in provider’s love and haste

she cannot fathom

that it is not her well worn fingers

that disturb

but the morsel proffered

that once

had the chance

to breathe and breed.
