Whatever could free up space:

Half a cabbage, whole white onion

Jalapeño, carrot, spice and chicken

Heat and water, time and chance.

Empty screen, a chocked full checklist:

Sun retreating, time-grains slipping 

Deadlines looming, backspace slamming.

Raped a book for data out of spite

Pour myself a bowl of misfit, mis…

Chop cilantro, squeeze a lime, pinch of salt:

Slurping, thinking, remembering, humbling…

Heat and water, time and chance.

Blank screen today, maybe soup tomorrow.
