The woman left hers untouched.

“You’re not eating
your cake?” he asked.

“I gave sweets up
for Lent,” she said.

He thought for a moment.

“I gave up religion for lent,”
he replied.

BIRTHDAY BATTLE

Sand falls,
Watch hands beckon,
A shadow creeps.
Time is skewering us all
To the wall.
To the wall boys!
To the wall!
Man the ramparts!
Sound the alarm!
Push them back!
Stop time!

Fall back! Fall back!
Hair recedes, grays.
Eyes, myopic, bag.
Arches fall,
Posture slouches.
Oh, the horror, the horror!
The….

(Ah, forget about it,
It’s just another year.
Where’s the cake?)
