Sentimental Moment or Why Did the Baguette Cross the Road, Robert Hershon

April is National Poetry month in the United States, and since I’m traveling with extremely limited internet access April 19-May 1, I would like to share a few poems while I’m gone. I’ll be back on Thursday, May 2 with a full post.

 

Sentimental Moment or Why Did the Baguette Cross the Road

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
