son was surprised to see me eating a cake donut.
He thought I’d bought them “to decorate.”

I started to wonder –
In this age of fancy coffee
And flaky pastries –
if cake donuts will endure
beyond the next generation or two.

How long before they go the way
Of the Early Bird Dinner
Served with fruit cocktail
And a glass of tomato juice.
