575: Sentimental Moment or Why Did the Baguette Cross the Road?

“Sentimental Moment or Why Did the Baguette Cross the Road?”
Robert Hershon

Don’t fill up on bread
I say absent-mindedly
The servings here are huge

My son, whose hair may be
receding a bit, says
Did you really just
say that to me?

What he doesn’t know
is that when we’re walking
together, when we get
to the curb
I sometimes start to reach
for his hand
