She leads the boy to the kitchen, he wants to be fed. She is building him up. The doctor said he needed more vitamin and greens in his diet, too much of the pizza and sugary stuff. He is anaemic.

Just for today, she says, she gives him the sweet cereal. The habit starts young, the tree is heading in the wrong direction. The Spirit is missing, it takes a long time to get it back, before the wasteland becomes a greener space, amen.
