Janey Bag’o’Cookies

I gotta say, kiddo,
I don’t get it.
You guys were so close.
Back in the days,
it was like you would never do anything apart
but now I see her coming over
and you don’t ever look her way anymore.

What happened with you two?
What division sundered
what was once so close?

She asks after you.
She doesn’t say what happened
doesn’t admit that anything did
but these old eyes can see some things.
You don’t have to tell me
what happened between you.
That’s your story to tell,
yours and hers
but she wants to know you still,
this old nose knows that.

She left these for you.
She said she made them
from scratch.
Home made – she substituted with butterscotch chips –
like you like.
Cookies are forgiving, she said.

Cookies, huh?
They’re soft.
Chew on those for a while.
