This year, they are healthy.
Whole wheat organic flour, sugar and butter,
they melt in our mouths.
One reads the newspaper and drinks milk.
The other two mix the dough, roll it out and
the one reading the paper eats them.
maybe one day his straw house will blow down
and the two women will be safe and sound in their
brick homes eating cookies they saved in the
freezer for such a day.
