banana curry cookies.

introducing the
ginger snap
with a poem

i am mashed up bananas
going whish, whish, whish
whipped by the paddle
stainless steel tub
i yearn for more.....
melting me
bumps in the road
every knot
nerve ending
i want to pack it up
light brown sugar
pat, pat, pat
pack me in
hold me down
tie my wrists
oh, not too tight
hand me a buoy
so i don't float
into the night sky
dollops of vanilla
1 beaten egg
foam and all
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
chugga chugga choo choo
i am on a train and the conductor
has no idea where to seat me
i am sticky, soggy, thick and tan
i have browned
all the spinning
'round and 'round
i am a hero
i need to sit down
slip into this crinkley
parchmont paper
oops i spilled me over
i need to lay down
totally surrender
to this round shape
i will eventually riiiissssseeee
i will grooooowwwwwwwww tall
and create a shape
i need all the heat i can get
i need to sweat this out
palm springs in july
i need hot hot hot
rise above
brown at the top
crisp on the sides
to know myself
in the heat
allow myself to let go
they will take me out
cool off on steel squares
i will try to avoid the nose
sniffing my survival
i have come so far
i am the little seed
no one is going to step on me
i cool down some more
i harden from the inside out
i am lucky
young eyes looking up at me
'mom, are they ready yet?'
the red head is talking about me
she wants me in her little watery mouth
baby teeth, small sweet tongue
i feel a lift
a body peel
that first bite
i hear in the one ear i have left
i am a hero
i say to myself
i did my job here.
