Fast food every night might sound ideal to a kid

but it left her often hungry for more.

She'd rummage through half-empty cupboards,

the kithen walls sticky with cigarette tar,

because they already ate dinner on the dark car ride home.

She would open a can of corn or peas

to be eaten cold in front of the television.

Right out of the can.

My family
