Day 204 – Simmer

Despite what the movies say
there is no lightning here,
halfway through a risotto recipe
and softly humming in the kitchen
while you flip through comics
waiting for dinner.
Why should there be lightning
in quiet times,
when there never was peace
through all our storms?
I will take what we have made
and watch it simmer.
