When I think of my mom
I think of malt o meal muffins
When I think of my dad
Memories of a child
Chasing us around the circle
While he warmed up
Cream of celery soup
Halting each round
Before the stove
Before he takes off
As we would giggle
Outrunning him
Serving it with cold
Ham and cheese slices
Pretending to be mice
Sitting on the front step
