rice and peas

a plate of rice and peas
is well met
with laughter and thanks
amidst the daily grind
and fear of the unknown
rice and peas shown
in front of you
is a welcome repreive
from it all
if only a moment
we sit
we smile
on sunsets
and contexts
this food
is a catalyst
for negotiation
on how to address
the next plate
and a
chance to disconnect
billing dates
interest rates
and phonelines
rice and peas
a complete meal
a meal complete
push the seat back
reminisce on that fact
or fiction
from '97
schedule it again
a delicious
daily diversion
