I am not dessert

(To Hillary)

I am black coffee and red wine.

I am carrots and celery and sometimes Kalamata olives.

I am salad.

And popcorn.

I am raw fish and smoked oysters.

I am chicken on the grill.


I am not coffee ice cream or red velvet cake.

I am not chocolate mousse or raspberry trifle.

I am so not crème brûlée.


Once in a while I am a piece of apple pie,

but not the kind with crumbs on top.

    • Oh, do you know, I have read it. Very funny–especially when you hear it read aloud. I was not thinking about it at the time, but who knows what lurks in the unconscious. 🙂
