“But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”

I watch the TV chef


I watch the TV chef 
preparing crayfish

the white flesh filling 
the bright orange shell.

He takes a fat claw
and slices it across.

As he pulls out the meat
and drops it into his mouth

I smell and taste it,
the succulent tang

as fresh and sweet
as in my childhood.


Note: Crayfish is the Australian term for lobster.
