bisque

heartfelt, kind words,
warm as soup,
is it wrong to want it in a mug
instead of a bowl?

Whether to go left or right instead of up,
down in error of back.
or crab crawl, in lock step
for a beautiful formation
cooked down from the least combination
of ingredients,
ladled out of your mind.

conclude with the oyster crackers from a
cellophane packet that you crinkled
and tossed away.

in that way, you can travel
and warm your hands in the cold
sipping as you need it,
and walking slow,
the people around you
ascend the streets.
