Leftovers

I never used to have them,
leftovers.
The kids ate every bite of dinner,
often went back for more,
and after dessert
if they were still hungry,
there was fruit, or bread and butter,
or a fold-over PBJ.

But now I can’t seem to stop
making giant meals
and the two of us
can’t possibly eat all that.

Sometimes I freeze the extra meals,
but often forget,
and feel somehow responsible
for all those starving kids
in China.
