Mud Season

Fog

   The fog comes
   on little cat feet.

   It sits looking
   over harbor and city
   on silent haunches
   and then moves on.


Mud


The mud comes

On little cat feet.

It sits watching
On pillow and paper
On rainy days
And then moves on.

Salmon and Peas—When you can no longer face another round of greens…fifties comfort food.

Make a bit pot of mashed potatoes—more than you think you will eat.

Make a white sauce from one tablespoon of butter, one tablespoon of flour, and a cup of milk. This is an old-fashioned sauce, but very handy to master.

Clean the little bones out of a can of salmon (or tuna, if you prefer). When the sauce has thickened, add the salmon and a bag of frozen peas. Heat thoroughly, without boiling.

Pour sauce over  the mound of mashed potatoes and add a sprinkle of paprika for color. Eat!

If there is any sauce left over, eat over toast for lunch the next day.
