Pea Ramble

each time you reach for me
I am sitting up in bed
thinking about the yellow peas
crushed and pounded into milk
flavored with vanilla
bottled and purchased and
sitting on a shelf on the door
in the fridge
I know what an udder looks like
and a cow
but what is a yellow pea
and why was it chosen
to represent the vegetable world
on it's foray into the realm
of replacement dairy products
that I only bought because
it was on sale and the bottle
the bottle resembled a gourd
and written on it ripple
in a font that left out the
left line of each letter
it was too good a deal
to pass up
