Recipe. Poetry. Slow Simmered Cabbage.

What’s for dinner—a first draft, a few lines of metered verse with a side of green cabbage. 

Peeled from my grandmother’s kitchen, the south,

pale green slivers scattered beneath a dull

blade. Full in the pot, salt, pepper, and stock

bubbling slow. I poured in piles of soft

feathered middles, raw cabbage to cook two

hours, until the flesh turns golden, seasoned

steaming cloud burst, boiling savory pot.
