Sum It Up
24 hours ago, the phone rang out. Calls in the dark of night- never good.
Spent the day baking. Some days that’s all you can do.
Shoveled the snow as it continued to fall, striking my face in a mocking way.
Dry beans are wicked-cheap because they are an all day affair.
I love my friends.
Burned those beans to a crisp. Ham too.
Have a man here who gives bone-deep, restorative hugs.
Saw a Langston Hughes quote-
I do not know,
I do not know.
Those are summin-up words.
