Chocolate pie


On our red cookbook

Flour dust crusts

From the taste

Written in the pages

That we try to

Pour into our glass pie pan.


Mom shows me how:

Pinch, spin, then press

The dough walls up.

Can’t let it fall,

Set at three-hundred degrees.


Don’t let it stick.

Eggs can’t be cooked.

Circle scrape-scrape circle.

The ready roux.

Cream pie, lump-free.


Count steady now:

Two times, up to sixty.

She stirred in stories,

Melted away years

With the chocolate.


A freckled hand

Still guides me.

Her doodles, blue

Hints in the margins, silly before,

But now seem perfect

As I try alone.
