   Rebecca are these

donut holes for us

I think so but I'm

not absolutely sure

The aroma of

sweet smell

of sugar donuts

holes fills the

air

Rebecca can

I have a

donut hole

I want one too

but maybe we

should wait to

see the purpose of

them

Nothing but eyes

Staring at the

Freshly baked donut holes

Our moist lips

Getting impatient

SLAM! door shutting

Familiar voices echo into the

Kitchen

Grabbing for a single

Donut hole

My mother snatched

my hand

Donut hole

Fell to the floor

Leaving only white spots

No they're for company

Donut holes

out of my reach
