When I Was Little – Sara Smith Andress

When I Was Little

we were so poor
my mother would water down the ketchup
and I learned that there are two options:
to leach the last remnants from the bottle
and risk being spread too thin,
or leave the clumps behind,
and eat eggs plain.

Sara Smith Andress lives in the Florida panhandle with her husband, two daughters, and fifteen chickens. She teaches composition and literature to community college students.
