A Brief Note

Art, you’ll find
my salt and peppered heart
in a covered dish
on the kitchen counter
next to the stove.
It’s been soaked all day
in your savory love.
Pop it in and bake it
at three fifty
for half an hour
or until it’s pink inside.
Don’t forget to
remove the glass lid
and baste it regularly.
With much affection,
Mayela.
