Auntie Cook in the Kitchen

Updated on February 13, 2013

She's an old shoe

who dreams of being

a glass slipper. She

shuffles and spins scratched

‘45s and dances with

the antique chairs in

the kitchen, turning bloody

liver and onions, cornmeal

biscuits, green beans with

salt pork, into a

meal for nephews and

nieces who expect hamburgers

like Brillo pads, hot

dogs as long as

Dachshunds, and none of

her Southern, home girl chitchat.

      Reminds me of my own Nana and how she loved to cook. We were raised in the South and ate every kind of green thing from the garden, except grasshoppers and frogs.
