Slotted Spoon

A human who doesn’t cook,
Not at all, wouldn’t know how,
Shouldn’t be reading

Poems and short stories
In which narrators
Hold symbolic cutlery
While making delicious meals.

The significance
Of an implement that lets
Juices through but holds solids

Must be metaphorical,
But how? Some of us
Only understand absinthe
Rituals, not soups or stews.
