The Turkey Trial Run

Flashbacks instantly

Of the family around the table

Forks clanking

Soda fizzing

Sweet, savory, tart.

Plates full

Stomachs full

Hearts full.

Same seats always,

Papa to my left

Grandma to his left

Mom, Dad, Jess.

One bite


To simpler days

Different days


One bite as I stand in my kitchen

“It’s a little dry. Next week we’ll get it right.”

As my thoughts trail back to that dining room table.
