crumb + cold + playful

there’s crumbs on the bench
a thin-framed tray cooling fresh
cookies from the stove.
a swipe of a damp sponge clears
away the crumbs, leaving clean.


the cookies go cold
left out too long and only
just staying soft. they
are still good, with a subtle
tang of orange when bitten.


someone ventures in,
eyeing the kitchen – empty
of any other
people. a playful hand snakes
out, grabs cookies, and is gone.
