Cheerios

— Nick Butterfield

A breakfast

Our four and a half year old asked us:

“What is this God.?” This after sharing

With us his favorite color, orange. I told

Him orange was also my favorite color.

He said to me: “Pick another color. There

is only one orange and it’s mine.”

I gave him my smile, a ½ circle with all the

Colors of light inside, spilling over like milk from

A bowl, and him eating cheerios, grinning.
