No need to explain everything
everything can never be explained
in the pot is stirred a hundred
whys, why nots, and wherefores.
Between the dream and hard work
chili peppers spark up breakfast
without knowing what else is cooked
in the same pan smothered in eggs –
Stolen, bought, softly packaged
in dozens only to be broken
like reasons, like all of our overly
clever explanations of everything.
