Ode to Puffs

Ode to Puffs

Baltimore, Maryland

Ah, for months you’ve been my favorite treat!
At first brush across my lips, you are
Delicate, crispy and slightly sweet.

Variety! You come in every flavor–
Peach, banana, sweet potato . . .
All of them I savor.

You are weightless in my hand,
Easy to hide and carry away,
Found again in unexpected places,
Nearly everyday!

But once kissed, how quickly you are gone!
You dissolve and disappear;
You do not linger here . . .

But there are ever more of you,
A seemingly endless supply.
And so, “More Puffs, more Puffs,” I cry.
