Treasure Island

Diana Holinski

(May 3,1968 / Waukeegan, IL)

Candy Shop


It's Aunt Nora's birthday
She's partial to Belgian chocolates
I go with mama
To the candy shop
'We're here to get a present
for Aunt Nora, ' she admonishes.
'Don't even ask for candy! '
And I promise.

But once inside,
the aroma of the place
The gleaming display cases
Candies winking at me
Like jewels

I know she'll say no
But I just have to ask!
