One of my favorite poems by poet Denise Duhamel is called Egg Rolls. In it Duhamel uses food as a metaphor for many deeper issues. She packs a lot into this poem, so much that I seem to discover more on each subsequent read.
Today, read Egg Rolls and freewrite on a time when you have felt conscious of class, not having enough money and choices you made good or bad at that time. Now get back to work!
