Curative

 

A Spell for Anita Reeves

 

Soup!
The scent
of boiling
fills the kitchen

chicken noodle soup,
a grand feast for the soul.
Recipe: three pounds chicken,
one carrot, four stalks of celery,
one large onion, cover with water
and simmer--the scent like holy incense.

Gourmet, extraordinary Chief, Grand Dame,
Anita
the distant caretaker
of colleagues, friends and their old souls

seasoned with a secret spice
blessed with an ancient prayer,
this powerful cure
restores lost joy
to the heart,
renews
health.
