“Oh Mama, look!”

The woman raised eyes from the screen to follow her daughter’s arm. “Kitsch to the max,” she wrinkled a lip at the stall.

“But Mama!” The child checked her tone before it thinned into a whine. She loved the shoes! She would need finesse. “I mean,” she shaped a grin, “for Purim?”

Her mother shook her head. “What are going to dress as, Queen of Tchotchkes?”

Candy’s Call

Come right up and

Cart on home

A bucketful

Of sugar shorn,

In colors that will

Gladden hearts

And sweet treat joy

To pull apart.

Kids tend to be

The eager ones

But some quite grown

Still think it’s fun.
