A poem from my daughter’s perspective

Collage of pictures of child with anaphylactic reaction — What Happened When I Ate Peanut Butter — Amy Marley
Photos were taken by myself

When I was one, I swiped some peanut butter toast.
It was up high so I had to climb, not that I’m gonna boast.
It tasted delicious but something wasn’t right,
My eyes felt funny and my throat a little tight.
