Oxtail rigatoni

Moist
brown
perfectly peasant

as if Time itself had been
slow-cooked in the paucity
of essential ingredients

and Space

no longer
alone at the corner table
of a posh Gotham joint

but under the gaze
of Nonna’s shiny eyes
in yesterday’s kitchen
alive

and I smile

at memories
coating my grateful palate
as the last of summer takes its bow
