I poured you a bowl
of cereal this morning
there was an empty milk jug in the fridge
who puts an empty milk jug back into the fridge?
as I searched for an alternative
half and half
and finally a bottle of 1% milk
all the way in the back
I suddenly remembered
pouring cereal for kids in Italy
and how they used milk that
didn’t need to be refrigerated.
What kind of milk doesn’t need to be refrigerated?
I have so many questions about that
and I haven’t really thought about it
when I found that bottle of 1% hiding
all the way in the back.
