I am from bleach on a dirt floor

I am from switches that never had a leaf

I am from chicken and dumplings, crawfish and Crawford

I am making groceries

I am Catholic with a dash of agnostic

I am from New Orleans and poboys and one meal a day if we were lucky

I am my grandmother’s coat

thin and sparse

I am from scarcity
