Family Reunion

Catherine Woodard



                                 Fried chicken               Battered biscuits                 Collared greens

                                       Arrested potatoes              Pounded cakes                Stewed parent

                                Mooned spies             Belittled Debbies                Fat backed chance

                                      Memento cheese              Bedeviled eggs              Hush pappy

                                        Iced t-drops             Self-arousing flour               Be calmed pie
