Haiku52:
Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 

Marian

Nilla wafers are
Superior to all snacks
It's a proven fact.

10:30 AM,
Time for lunch. The whole place smelled
Like ripened string cheese.

Indian summer
In the moment deja vu
When is winter break?

Back-to-school shopping
Meant new Lisa Frank folders
And scented markers.

I would take the tests
And rewrite all the essays
To do it again.

Remember college?
Feels like many years ago.
We are getting old.

That was a sad one.
Here's something to cheer you up:
Power of the pause.

UT years a blur
I feel bad about my neck
The next phase of old

One room, two Sarahs
Three years we lived together
When can we again??
