{Poetry}: Day Four: What You Ate Today

Bowl of Comfort

A bowl of eggs
(scrambled,
salted and peppered.
No hot sauce
this time.)

A bowl of Mexican rice,
spicy seasoned chicken,
corn salsa,
and a wee bit of cheese.

A bowl of comfort,
macaroni and cheese,
with white cheddar sauce.
(Fills the hole in my tummy
and warms my soul.)

If you are what you eat,
I must be a bowl of comfort
to those who surround me.

-L.G.
