What Will I Have for Dinner Tonight

What will I have for dinner tonight?
I see all the food in the world in my eyes
a hall extends with table after table
with a room or two just for potatoes
vegetables and fruits have their own niches
meats and fishes, mushrooms and spices,
breads and breads and butter too
and desserts towering in layers to the roof
I rub my hands as my mouth starts to water

then POP goes my dream and before me a cupboard
beans and canned meats and bread a little stiff
a half bottle of that and a third of this …
that a little salt and pepper just might fix …
