The state of Be-ing

I have been quiet a long time now. So long, in fact, that I wonder if I have a voice at all; and even if I do, is there anyone out there willing to listen? I wish thinking were as easy as cooking. You could just pop your head inside the fridge and know what … Continue reading The state of Be-ing

Bearing grudges

What’s Cooking?

Thinking about cooking up a storm?

The Grateful Dead

She says she doesn’t know cooking

So there is no use talking

Of techniques or flavours,

Or aromas or colours.

The only thing she gets

Is the food on her plate.

Yet she deep fries her lies,

And seasons it with tears.

And sautes to develop

The flavor of her fears.

A quick blanch can soften

Her tough cold heart.

And if you roast often

Everyone’s a piece of art.

She sugar coats her anger

Before baking it with vengeance.

Dollops of added hatred,

Oh! What a sweet indulgence!

She might find the kitchen

A foreign territory

But still she’s a certified

Master Chef of misery.
