Mom Quotes in The Crossover
And while Dad is telling us another story
for the hundredth time, Mom removes the salt
from the table and JB goes to the buffet.
He brings back three packages
of duck sauce and a cup of wonton soup
and hands them all to me.

plus I have a lot of homework,
I skipped lunch today
and finished my homework
