Cellophane

He tore the cellophane
from around the box
of Windmill cookies.
Pieces of cellophane
clung to his fingers.
He shook and shook his
hand and then when he
used his other hand to
remove the cellophane,
it clung to that hand,
too. He stood shaking
both hands but the
cellophane wouldn’t
budge. He used a paper
towel to remove the
cellophane from his
hands and toss it all
in the wastebasket.
Thoughts of the Temp-
orary Occupant came
to mind. Then he shook
his head and reached
for a cookie.
