Note: I don’t quite know how the tune goes, but I’m thinking it might work with a Joni-Mitchell-esque kind of flutey-pipey vocal. The last two lines I suspect are a chorus of sorts, with which we can all join in, lustily.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Day of scudding clouds, for which I first
Reach always for the word ‘sculling’; clouds
Playing kiss-catch with the sun.
Gravity’s up to no good in the kitchen,
Unreliable as wi-fi. Soaked at the sink;
Butter on the floor. A wall-map of Canada
Arrives in a tube and all of my frames tumble over.
In the final episode of Fargo, Season 1,
Martin Freeman’s Lester makes a deal
Of ordering the grilled cheese sandwich.
Suggestible as – well, whatever you’d care
To recommend – I hit pause and go rootin’
For the book, Grilled Cheese, on a cookin’
Book shelf and all of my books tumble over.
In this book, which is only about grilled cheese,
The first recipe is the one I need.
