she will cook bread
on Saturday mornings
always with the windows open
even in December
and she will ask you every time
to kiss away the almond flour
from her cheeks and chin
and she will teach you
how to make homemade hummus
for full moon potluck parties
and steam artichokes with bay leaves
and lemons slices for healing
and she will press her body
to your lips in the evening
after dinner and dishes
and whisper you name
as if it were a spell,
as if it were a recipe
