Playdough Pizza

I made you a play dough pizza
With miniscule teal pepperoni pieces
That were indented flat with fingerprints

I made you a play dough pizza,
In a perfect circle with the ends turned up
So it looked like hot pink crust

I made you a play dough pizza
That I cut raggedy strips of purple for
To act as the vertical lines of cheese.

I made you a play dough pizza
Covered in little green sausage balls
Which were rolled in between my fingers

I made you a play dough pizza
In hopes of your approval of something
So simple and that maybe, just maybe,

You’d love me a little more.

I'm going to be outright and honest about this poem- It deserves to be in the magazine (and I'm being serious, I would love to see this in the publication)
