Every day I make dinner

Pulling together ingredients

Combining protein, carb, green veg

Assembling flavors, layers

Soaking

Simmering

Searing

Smoking

Roasting

Toasting

 

Every day I make dinner

Because I am desperate

An invisible plague everywhere

No way to stop it

But to hide with my family

 

Every day I make dinner

To draw my family together

To hold them close at the table

To call my wife back

From her suddenly dangerous calling

Leading women through the terror and triumph

Of birth

And now scared

Air filled with death

Even as life abounds
