Sustenance

Tis not so much 
the mac and cheese, 

but rather, 

the imperturbable patience 
of waiting 
for the troubling of the water— 

the softening of the noodles,
crunchy underfoot— 

the precise measurements,
of milk and butter,

and the

sipping from the 

slender stemmed glass 

of soothing chardonnay.
