Shelling Peas

ILLUSTRATION BY LINDA COOK DEVONA

Shelling peas isn’t easy.
I shelled my share as a kid.
They pop out of their shells,
they get eaten
they roll out of the bowl
and roll around on the floor.
We shelled
we ate
they rolled.
Mother mumbled
over each half-bowl of peas
swept the porch floor
and next year
planted more.
