throated hummingbirds have an
age-old exchange – quid

please pardon me for

mama and daddy

mama and daddy
met on the intersection
of apples and pears,

and the rest is delicious
history – baked, sauced, freshly peeled

after all these years,

after all these years,
mom and dad still perfects every
recipe with love

and unwavering patience –
two stomachs are better than one

and love, loved, still love are quite

not-an-intruder alert

in the hushed pockets

in the hushed pockets
behind the front teeth, the taste of

come after twelve years, looking
up at the five-day-old moon

mama always shares
her brooches – gold, silver, cultured

from time by our talismans

in myriad ways,
day two is similar to
day one – we gather,

break bread, remember to be
grateful for a brand new day
