How is it?
That despite your dry lips
you deny those last few drops
of that sweet sweet soda pop

How is it?
That though your hunger grows
you pass me those last few pieces
of warm tortilla

How is it?
That you can ignore
your weary hands and tired eyes
and still make me delicious cookies

I drank that last drop
ate that last piece
and napped
while you baked

I love you, Mom
I just hope
that when the time comes
my son will ask too …
how is it?
