Sweet Little Nothings

Teach your grandma to take a selfie

Eleanor Carter had been a real dish
when she was young—
“Like Wedgwood Blue china,”
she would say.
She had ripened into an Heirloom tomato,
ready for Jesus to claim,
to pluck from the aging vine.
But when the day came that she learned how to take a selfie,
her poodle—
all ribbons & bows—
photobombed it,
becoming an Internet sensation.
She found she was no longer
the cat’s meow,
but rather,
Kippin Caboodle was the dog’s bow-wow.
