Elegy for Donuts

by Susanna
(North Carolina)

I’m very sorry
You were perfectly shaped
Perfectly iced in glaze
Your sprinkles lay on top

My stomach was growling
But lunch was in another hour
You sat right in front of me
I took one little bite
Then a few more

Once I turned back around
You weren’t there anymore
Oh, please come back
I need to finish you!
