Theme Fridays: Comfort Food

They know where to find you in the small towns

when the rising tides of bad news break

and one of you is injured or gone-

to the hospital or heaven-

they show up with comfort, with food.

They know where to find you in the small towns

and they bring you what they can to give you what you need

(I’m Sorrys and strong shoulders and arms that wrap around you/

casseroles, corn and chicken with noodles).

Comfort.  Food.

    The fascinating thing about this is that ominous threat that laces the words, “They know where to find you in a small town.” As if comfort is a frightening thing.

    I love that. It has some baggage to it that’s beautiful and sick.
