Soup Chef

Throw all our bones in the pot,
chop up carrots and celery and herbs,
measure in secret spices,
and the purest water,
then give it slow heat
while we prepare the potatoes,
the vegetables, the meat, the cream
for a hearty bowl of soup.

Control over every detail?
This one ain’t from the box.
Lose it to distraction?
The time is yours, dear.
Get it exactly right?
It will be, it will be.

The stock knows how to make
its way out of your hand.
