2. Dad Making Toast (Karlo Mila Style)
My dad is making toast, early in the morning.
He is barely awake.
Standing by the bench in his PJ's,
Groggy eyes and stifled yawns.
He would rather be in bed.
The toaster is heating up and
making a smell which is
filling up a room.
He likes peanut butter spread thickly on his toast,
waiting for the 'pop' is torture
when you need food.
He glances side to side- to see who is watching
and dips a teaspoon into the jar.
Into his mouth is a big blob,
sticking his mouth shut.
Pop! Two bits of bread are toast- burnt toast.
