No. 6: Things in a Can
About 10 minutes drive from Grandma’s
porch, and a few minutes more past that
totem pole at the Y in the road to my
cousins’ old house, is the B&M restaurant.
It was famous for a bowl of pork and beans
with thick sauce sweetened with molasses.
The beans, they were just normal beans.
The pork was a thumbnail-size square
of wibble-wobble pork fat.
B&M pork and beans also came in a tin
for purchase at your local shop. I never ate
B&M tinned beans because that fat made
me gag, and nothing made my mother rage
about her kitchen than me gagging on her food.
