Cardamom Seeds

…He makes everyone feel like an angel and delivers promises
like cardamom seeds hidden inside pods. I make notes in black and white
and describe lamb spiced with coriander cumin turmeric and garam
masala all eyes averted as chef grinds the green pods with pestle
and mortar discarding the husks he pounds until his head nods
and the fragrance of cardamom fills all the exotic space between us…
