“Weaknesses At the Weekend”

“Weaknesses At the Weekend”

Weaknesses at the weekend–yes, perhaps,
And then there are the early autumn’s housebound
Moments when the embers’ crackling sounds
Speak volumes to the soul, stay put and mishaps
Of the weekdays’ wounds are soon overlooked
In major preparations’ soups and brews
And special sauce while the marinating stews
And meats are seasoned over notebook
Recipes in peppered flour, yes. A fine pork chop
Or two there on the counter smiling in the kitchen,
A filet for sure or then again the hearts of artichokes smitten
With the thought of someone’s mother’s chicken boiling in a pot
All day with herbs and garlic; eventually, an entire tree of broccoli,
A wreath of parsley. Broth days…
…it’s the famous the famous eat or sleep dichotomy…
