POETRY, Syllable Tapestries

A person to cook rice

Just cooked  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;


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.”
