Mum's recipe for Apple Almond Pie
coming down through the wires to me
left shoulder raised, holding phone in place
scribbling ingredients on a scrap of paper
butter and sugar – beat together
add the egg and almond essence
mix it all with flour and baking powder
the chopped apples and milk come last
PTO for the time and temperature
plus a poem about Dad and me
