Forget Victoria’s Secret
It is December 10th
and I am chewing on a homemade cookie
I KID YOU NOT!
I’m chewing and swallowing the yummy goodness
and my mouth
hell, my nose
and my taste-buds
are drunk, in the after fresh-baked glow
of granola, organic oats
organic cane and brown sugar
and did I mention
and salt so
another damn COOKIE!
