Sunday Dinner

One wants
in a fantastic time
the certainty of
chicken popping in grease
the truth of potatoes
steaming the panes and
butter
gold and predictable as
heroes in history
melting over all.

"Its been autumn in this garden for twenty years.  For twenty years it's smelt like this, and he's unlocked the garden gate in just this way and locked it again behind him.  Time here is like a vast country to which one can return home season after season."  -  Jenny Espenneck
