Bearer of Bad News


I understand if

you never let me

borrow your clothes again


Whenever I eat

something I love

IÕm as clumsy as a bear


But the noodles

were hand-made

and were so delicious


You could smell

the garlic bread from

across the room


When I saw 

the waitress coming

my mouth watered


After the first bite

I didnÕt see the stain 

on your favorite shirt



The Flake


I should have 

texted you before

that I was 

going to be late


Please forgive me

but I was

a busy bee

eating kettle corn


while watching a movie

instead of checking

the time we

were supposed to meet
