A Person to Cook Rice

Just cooked myself dinner:
some veggies,
and a seared Red Snapper.
What would I call it?
I don’t know,
it’s ad lib cooking;
let’s see what’s in the fridge cooking;
albeit,
as I put it on my plate,
I think, man, I need some rice.
But it’s too late.

I need someone to cook the rice.
When I cook family meal at work,
one of other cooks asks “what can I do to help?”
I reply. “Cook some rice.”
I almost don’t remember how to cook rice.
It’s been so long.
I’ve got rice here. I just don’t cook it.
Maybe, I need to put an add in the newspaper,
or on Craigslist or some message board on the internet.

“Help wanted.
a person to cook rice
stay around and talk awhile
and eat dinner with me.”
