Aunt Jemima / heather l. thompson

Da box
ain bad
it cool
up here
on da pantry shelf
.
powdered mix
ain heavy
doan cut ya hand
like cane
like pressin close
like beatin carpet
.
it nice here
my scarf keep clean
earrings doan hook
from hidin in bush
.
but when da box finish
I finish too
I ga end up at da dump
hands once pawed
feet will now stomp
.
