Matches and recently lit cigarettes
cigarettes cling to her clothes
clothes with years of wear
wear that has ruined shoes
shoes with exhausted soles
souls who suffer for her daughter
daughter who never goes hungry
hungry for crockpot recipes
recipes that she never follows
follows her family to the table
table that she refuses
refuses to sit until her family is fed
fed long after the meal has cooled
cooled then rewarmed
rewarmed by strong coffee
coffee flavored by pinches of cinnamon
cinnamon which seems sweet
sweet until you take too much
