Elbow Macaroni

Remember Macaroni jewelry boxes?
The first one for Mother’s Day was always a surprise.
We need the elbow ones Ms. Merriwether said.
“Don’t waste this food. There are starving children everywhere.”
We need Elmers glue.
We need paint too.
A smoking box I think.
“We don’t smoke no reefers. I need to talk to your teacher.”
Mama what is reefer? Ms Merriwhether said Shugars I think?
Cigars? Oh your dad has an empty box or two that you may use.
