Memory poem: for Clara

Thrift

The older I get
the less I waste

remember how Grandma used to save
envelopes in a certain drawer
to reuse for grocery lists

	loaf of white bread (not McGavin’s) 
	cream
	McCormick’s social tea biscuits
	Tums
	7Up

From Wylie’s Store downtown
where they used to let us buy on credit
if our Family Allowance check was late
or Dad had been fired again
Grandma
