Inspiration piece

thoughts while twirling angel hair
By Lisa Nielsen

it’s been a long time since
i’ve let anything marinate overnight
soaked in garlic, parsley, lemon
intoxicating the house

is it strange that pleasure can still exist
that pungent parmesan can erase all thought
except thoughts about cheese

i now take long walks on the beach
i appreciate the loud chatter of waves
i can no longer hear
they are few and far between
like some unwritten law

i smile and wave

a girl looks at me but doesn’t wave back.
she is using both hands to hang onto her father
who is walking towards the ocean
