Ode to a chocolate chip cookie

Crushed by bone
tongue like a blind whale
that pokes in the cracks for more
mashed river of chocolate
slides down the tunnel
lands in that greedy bin
of never quite enough
before the labyrinth of gratitude
pushes it the way my son
winds his long row of trains
to where the blood begs for it

at last

it is no longer a cookie
it is love.
