Mommy, You Taste Like…


Mommy, you taste like...
Well-seasoned chicken
Whitened, sweet coffee
cornbread in the skillet-salty
the love of time gone by...
gooey sweet potato
bitter coffee
minted gum-spearmint
sweet sun tea
grilled brats in the summer
unsung song of smooth, mashed potatoes
seasoned salt
cayenne pepper
spicy pickles in the womb and pork rinds
that first pot roast
Reprise of Dana's taco salad
Wendy's French fries that chronicle your too-young motherhood
Yellow cakes with chocolate icing and peanut butter cookies
Stirred in humble, loving devotion.
Crunchy Bugles!
