It's just poetry, it won't bite

Contributor Series 8: Feast and Famine
By Nate Spears
The love from my mother’s pie
Warms my digestive tract as it passes through
Each slice warms me up
As it flows through
The sweet potatoes thicken our bond
The lemon extract stings
The milk soothes
The sugar makes it all so sweet,
For these ingredients
She loves me.
This time of year
Ingredients mean more than just food preparation
It’s food for the soul
We spread love
