Cooking Keeps Me Sane

When I cook
if I begin
with the best ingredients I have
take my time
and pay attention
then deliciously
consistently
I enjoy good results

With everything else
career
relationship
or hobby
I can begin
with the best ingredients I have
take my time
and pay attention
and end up with
totally random crap

Only cooking
convinces
that the universe
can make sense
the way I so
desperately
want it to

Sometimes
what I make to eat
alone
redeems my day

I like the magic of throwing a bunch of ingredients together on the off chance it will turn into something of merit. I am almost never disappointed - which, when one considers life, is pretty miraculous.
Food becomes delicious while we cook with proper attention with all ingredients. Having delicious food is nice always. Interesting poem this is...10
