hey kid

you’re falling further





please don’t cry

or fuss

there’s no point in waiting

for what will never come

but wait – it’s time for dinner

chile verde!

spicy and tangy and warm

homemade corn tortillas!

robust, chewy and soft

you can feel again

is that your body?

is that your heartbeat?

as your teeth sink

through the soft tortilla

and into the tender flesh

there is so much leftover

so much love

on the kitchen table

help yourself to more

make yourself sick

then go away

lock the door

play with your toys

spin your records

and read your books

wonder what grandma will make for dinner tomorrow…
