21. Thanksgiving Pie

On Thanksgiving, Mom and I share

a slice of apple pie:


me, eating only the fruit, rolled in cinnamon and ginger

she, eating only the crunchy topping, doused in caramel

her fork goes high

mine scoops out the middle.


We savor each sweet bite,

ignore cancerous crust.

Go right ahead.
