Food Is Not Just Matter, It Matters

I don’t really need

to taste the whole dish

when I am not searching

for sustenance.

Often when I try new things,

it is simply out of



That little cake

made with coconut milk

and circled

with an almond custard sauce,

only just a single bite

could brighten my day.


While others around me

have their computers

turned to vibrant games

in those spare hours,

I have multicolored spreads

of international cakes

and bright salads.



I frequent three supermarkets

in one go

to get all the ingredients


for my next

foray into joy.


Over a mess

of pots and pans

I stew about

what to do next.

The next moment’s happiness

may soon lay

just in my reach,

if I get it right.
