Mushrooms

When Vera Williams first noticed
that I was interested
in wild mushrooms,
she told her children
not to touch any of them
because they were all
deadly poisonous.

A few days later
she bought a steak
at Martino’s and
decided to serve it
smothered with mushrooms.

When she
started to cook the mushrooms,
the children
all stopped whatever they
were doing and watched
her attentively.

When she served
dinner,
they all burst into tears.
