Crumbs of Normalcy

Dinner preparations were chaotic

As only family can conjure

They quibbled o’er trivia

Culinary strategy

Mom’s perpetual overfull fridge

How much broccoli is enough?

(make it all!)

They ate in that syncopated

Disjunctive harmony

Of love and familiarity

Evening’s piece de resistance:

Her baby reminds her that

Once again, she ruined his life!

(In the usual way that all moms ruin their children’s lives- daily)

She is surely doing something right.
