308

She said they were breakfast.

Cinnamon and Lucky.

Called them cereal and laughed small

like she knew they’d heard that joke

a million times before.

They can’t be cereal anymore, though.

That gunshot was a crack

and everything just oozed out of the bowl –

spilled milk.

They don’t remember small laughs.
