Moist, but not necessarily chewy – v4

As we climbed into the car after the school day
I asked for details, for the truth
of the girls in the back seat;
The chocolate was already consumed
before asking, before it was allowing
more candy to be enjoyed

Two brownies was her answer
wanting more information
asking if they were chewy;
Moist was her response
Moist, but not necessarily chewy,
to her older sister’s consternation

Enjoying a laugh on the way home
after the school’s Valentine’s Day party;
Her answer precise, perfect
something for the memory books
that her brownies were moist,
but not necessarily chewy
