mom’s spaghetti, stir-fried kale,
my favorite bottled ginger ale,
seedless grapes, roast beef ciabatta
lemon parsley gremolata
enchiladas, pasta Thai,
crockpot soup, ham-on-rye
pinto beans, baked potatoes,
warm brie, sliced tomatoes,
steamed broccoli, Pringles chips
roasted carrots, hummus dips
Mardi Gras pancakes, black-eye peas,
fresh corn, or pimento cheese.
But when I’m busy, feeling about to die,
I run in the deli for a pre-made pie.
Then, everyone cheers! They love anything sweet.
And, still, it’s not about what we brought to eat.
