my mother
bernandine
born then
when flying
was getting
drunk
bernadine
(i call her that)
what are you doing?
baking banana nut bread
had these extra bananas
they were really ripe
had to use them
before i had to
throw them out

but you baked
a chocolate cake
just yesterday
and biscuits today
and nobody is eating it

well eat it then you
can have some
banana nut bread
i put in some
pineapple this time
to make it more moist
i didn't like the
last one

when was that?
i ask eyebrows
lifting up high

last week
i think
have some
banana nut bread
its fresh
its got pineapple
in it to make
it more moist

but you make
too much baked goods
and we dont eat
that much baked goods

have some
banana nut bread
its good with coffee
and its fresh
with pineapple
to make it
more moist

i dont drink
coffee at seven
at night

have some
banana nut bread
in the morning
its good with
coffee and
it has pineapple
in it to make it
more moist

where is the
chocolate cake?

do i have any left?
i just made some
banana nut bread
with pineapple
to make it
more moist
i like it with
my coffee in
the morning
take some
with you
i like it
in the morning
with my coffee
its fresh with
pineapple in it
makes it more.....

thanks bernadine
ill have it in
the morning with
my coffee and
chocolate cake
and biscuits
until i get as
big around as
a caterpillar
tractor tire

what did you say
i cant hear you
very good...here
have some banana
nut cake with
pineapple i put
in it....

(bernadine will be 95 this year. she was a flapper girl in the 20's. took her piano practice money and bought shoes. she still has 1,238 pairs of shoes...two pairs of which she uses, and they are too small, but comfortable.)
