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,
Lord God,
I do not know.

Those are summin-up words.
