GROCERY

when i was a little Girl
nothing seemed more exciting
than a trip with my mom
to the local winn dixie
Riding on the outside of the cart
as she perused the aisles
searching for each item
on her perfectly penned list
Oh, mom! please can we
and the requests would begin
coke
apple jacks
donuts
ice cream sandwiches
peter pan peanut butter
wonder bread
endless pleas for each and every
kind of shitty item
we Could put into
our little brown bodies
refusing to believe
she would
could
should
say no
and yet, she did
Every damn time
because she was a firm believer in
natural peanut butter
cracklin’ oat bran
fruit
and yogurt
junk in my mom’s world
equated to tang and homemade Rice crispie treats
but i was as stubborn
as she was certain
and so I persisted
for Years
determined to get her to buy some crap
out of winn dixie
instead
she simply started shopping at kroger


My #WednesdayFreeWrite series is based on what I write during the 10 minutes allotted my writing group’s Wednesday Prompt. As always, these pieces are works of fiction, erupting from my incredibly over-active imagination. They are unedited and unscripted, super loose and probably my favorite ten minutes of the week. They are perfect in their imperfections and I hope you enjoy.
