Suck lemons before you ask for love.
Because your kitchen has much in it already.
A cherry danish will look you in the eye every morning.
A bagel will not sigh at the reminder of something promised.
Coffee will hold your face in its palms until you remember why.
Roast chicken will wrestle the sorrow from your shoulders.
Potatoes are not anything but honest.
Apples will fall into your lap.
Peaches will not leave until you give them reason to.
Pears will stay up late with you.
Toast will crumble at your touch.
Butter cannot betray you.
Eggs cannot lie.
All will nourish you.
before you starve.
