One Pot Meal

My favorite perfume
is diced ginger root,
green onions,
and minced garlic
with a hint of jasmine rice
bubbling away in the cooker.
When the aromas
linger on my hands,
I hold them close to my face
and deeply inhale,
and it’s what love smells like
because I’m cooking you
my favorite dinner.
Nothing fancy,
takes me about 15 minutes
once everything is chopped,
but it’s what I’d request
on Death Row, I think.
Just one last taste of
a good day.
