Portrait


Olives come in green, black and between

rice has hull removed

and sits in stomach

white.

Beans are a plate of kidneys

in grease and garlic

 

Chickens walk on dark

cluck comes up

from the light.

 

Dinner leaves its origins

on stove

before reaching plate

 

Stains remain

where Clorox and Brillo

fail

 

Next meal is served,

cooking tasked

to new hands

different tastes.
