Intertwined whisks


Whirl the egg, drizzle in broth —

roux mustn’t clot. Passion


stirred, hungry lives mixed up.

Tavern, party, friends, texts,


later a date, a kiss, now this.

Like French cooking, all about


the sauce. Wrong one for blending 

or blending wrong. 


Two shiny whisks, different sauce,

intertwined, the same pot.
