My grandma had a hardscrabble youth--
sifting through ash piles for nickels and dimes,
wedging a palm-sized corn cake among twelve mouths--
and so rarely offered us advice
for fear of spoiling our own misadventures,
except to say time and time
again through the tight lips of
“Chicken tends to be most pink at the bone.”
