Mother’s Kitchen

something about mother’s kitchen always holds steady. / i think it’s partly wisps of green tea
entwining with the rambling of those sketchy Chinese news outlets / but also partly the chubby
yet scrimpy stamps of little Satan arriving. / plastic insulation films, purple-brown lilacs,
monotonous diamond white-grey tiles; / static life / whatever it is, i find oddly homey.
