she was always planning
two meals ahead
her mind
always stirring thoughts
of what to combine for dinner
with the leftovers of lunch
or the other way
she kept constant mental tabs
of what was in the pantry
what was in the fridge
what juices were old
and what fruit was ripe.
my mother was a damn good cook
and she still is
and while rambling around
some foreign country
a knot in my gut
and my ass a faucet
I think about a home-cooked meal
oh, how good that would be
