Making Goulash

how it was
that we stayed up until 12:30am
making goulash?

towards the end
we were so tired
that he forgot English
and I couldn’t
finish sentences
because I was falling
asleep on his shoulder

from his mouth
potatoes
became tomatoes
peppers
were paprika
and we would just shake our heads
and resort to pointing

I’ve overslept this morning
no time for my writing hour
but we’ve got a big
bright vat
of slavic sustenance
on the stove top

Na zdraví
