Buttermilk Pancakes

by Steve Walkowicz


Aunt Jemima

smiling on her box

says,

“Makes 12 to 18 pancakes.”

Buttermilk.

Such a great word it bears repeating

Buttermilk.

Just add water and it’s

complete.

Can my life be

summed up as completely?

Makes 4 children

pays taxes on time

tries to always find a reason

to smile?

Aunt Jemima

still making

buttermilk pancakes,

buttermilk

after all these years.

I applaud your consistency.

The way you seem to say,

“Eat a good breakfast,

love,

and you will find

your reason to smile.”
