March dribbles - 19

Spring Break; Jake’s eating gummy-snakes. Jane cringes, takes him out in the yard. “Let’s pull weeds.”

“What’s weeds.”

Shows him dandelions. “These.”

He pulls out daffodils. “Mom, what’s this?” long and green; not a worm. Gummy-snakes changing color and squirming. They hiss at her.

Why’d it have to be snakes?
