Cooking

Click—pop!

Stove’s on

Butter melting silently

Into a silky clarified pool

As I clatter the cutting board

And (zwing!) draw the knife

From the block

“Hisssss” says the water running

Over the red-orange pepper

And then

Sssssslice—pop

Chop chop chop

Chopchopchopchopchopchopchop

Then into the pan you go

And a loud sizzle rises

From the popping butter

Sounds like a round of applause

For my cooking.
