The brimming bowl

the brimming bowl
of potato salad
she made at home
.....my tub of store-bought
.....shriveling beside it

red lights, Vol. 9, No. 2, June 2013


To those in the U.S., Happy Fourth! Eat a lot of potato salad.

  1. Really sweet - and potato salad, the perfect choice of food for a summer celebration. Love the contrasts:
    bowl - tub
    made at home - store bought
    brimming - shriveling
    I've so been there!

  2. thanks, wendy. potato salad used to be a family staple in the summer - at picnics or whenever.

    when I had far less time, I used to cook a lot more!

  7. I'll bet you spent the time writing poetry. And when the muse is "cooking" we have to tend to it carefully.
