for a cynic, I'm excitable
like when my miorpoix is in perfect squares
and the onions waft
hitting butter, gaining color

and most of the soup goes bad
and I think about starving kids

I can't eat split pea all week
even with a hint of thyme
even if I made my hands smell like garlic
for two entire days
