Each tiny piece of carrot
He puts it in his mouth
He take it from his mouth
He puts it on her plate

A small, white bean.

A kernel of corn

Open.

Close.

A piece of grape
She doesn’t want it.
She doesn’t like the shape

Open.

Bowl of clippings.
Sucking each one straight.
He puts a pea on her plate.
He puts a pea on her plate.

Later she’ll say she’s hungry.
And he’ll make something else that she won’t eat.
