Canadian Poetry (poem)

Diligently cut
The vegetables
Zucchinis
Tomatoes
Peppers
Of different colours
Crack some eggs
Add
Some salt
And spices
To whatever cheeze you had left
Put on some music
And kick off the frying pan

Beanie hat on
And a hoodie
Inside too
We’ve reached that point
Again

When
The
Small
Daily rituals
That keep the body fit
Also keep the mind afloat
Until your next move
Is finally upon you
A few weeks from now.

It’s a waiting game at this point

So
You pour the coffee
Have a sip
Cringe
As it
Needs sugar
And cream

Look out the window
The frost is already
Spreading against the edges.
Cold sneaking in against cracks
When
The winds are fierce
And you
Know very well
This place
Will be hell
In only a matter of weeks.

    • Hi! Thanks for writing. It was a very Canadian Poem indeed. Been reading Alden Nowlan lately so this is openly influenced by his work. Have a great day. Ian
