Each night once the kids are asleep
I rinse off the day’s muck with a cool shower
flip through a journal of poems
the television glaring over the spine

I love finding words I don’t know
Tragic words like suttee
Plural satis
Pronounces like sauté
A cruel similarity
A widow hurls herself on a funeral pyre

About Me

A poet-chef living in Denver, Co. I use the orange Aquafresh toothpaste, off brand mouthwash, and those little floss picks.
