Dinner Prep

Oil SPITS

as the tiny shards

,sizzle.

Aromatic garlic fills the space.

Cupboards clap! shut,

measuring spoons rattle

against the counter.

Hands drenched, shaking pieces

of cilantro from fingertips, the

green leaves cling to flesh.

 

It all spills into the pot

(beans and meat and garlic and greens)

to be consumed hours later.
