Homemade Soup from a Heavy Blue Pot

Will you be
my recipe
book? Can I call
on you
for curry advice and browse
your index
when I feel lost? Say yes, and I will flip through
your pages, pausing
at the picture
of a small brown-haired child with large eyes
and a wooden spoon.  I will eat
homemade soup from a heavy blue pot
and when ice
clings to naked boughs,
I will open
you slowly, read you
thoroughly and test your truth
with every
tastebud.
