Dinner for Two

I have not tried one recipe
from the cookbook you gave me
I finger through it some days
The foods – elaborate experiments
you thought I’d make
when I became a vegetarian.

It’s just like you
to give me something
of little use,
like flowers that die
when I needed seeds
to take root,
plants in soft dirt,
clay to form words.
