Steam rising slowly
from black peppered
fluffy pale yellow.
Heat rising from the flat surface.
Long strips of crisp red and brown.
Short stubs of meat linked together.
Flat disks of flour
singed and smoking
crunchy but not burnt.
Dark liquid dripping into a pitcher.
Steam hissing as it hits the air.
Slowly filling the room with fragrance.
The sound of ceramic
the coarse feel of paper
mouth watering; eager.
Flat disks lain atop the coarse paper.
Topped with yellow puffs and long strips.
The paper now covering the ceramic with a meal.
Dark liquid in a mug.
Sitting contently alone.
A perfect start for today.
