Watching Them Change And Grow

One hundred pieces of pasta
Counted out
One at a time
Placed in a plastic bag
Sealed up
Zipped into the backpack
Are now waiting in the front hallway
Tomorrow they’ll head out to school
When they come back
They’ll be changed
I wonder
If I’ll notice
Anything beyond chips and breaks
I sincerely hope
I do
