That time when friendship could begin with a cookie.

When you're five years old

and on your first day of pre-school,

there is nothing more exhilarating

than walking up to that kid in

the corner, in the red sweater,

looking him in the eye and saying

"Would you like a chocolate cookie?"

and waiting for his answer

under that oddly discerning stare

and hearing him say

"Let's share it".
