Breakfast Southern Style

download

Before I married a Louisiana boy,

grits were not something I ate for breakfast.

Before I married a Louisiana boy,

I would never have added

hot sauce to an egg dish.

Before I married a Louisiana boy,

I would have told you gravy

was for mashed potatoes or stuffing.

Today we ate brunch at a trendy

Brooklyn restaurant with a cajun flair.

What once seemed foreign,

now feels like home.

  1. I like this poem. It is short and sweet and makes me think about breakfast, which I love. I like how you used repetition at the beginning of the poem and the last two lines, about food feeling like home.
