Spice and Whiskey (for Jordan)

Spicy sauces
stirred together
in spider webbed,
candle lit kitchens,
knives and spoons
clamor to voice
their opinions
on just a dash more
garlic, or no,
and whether light
gets hungry at
3 in the morning
for tacos and ice cream
just like I do.

I smiled so big
in a way that
stretched my brain out,
wide open I saw the rain,
and felt
sweeping thankful warmth
rush through me
the way whiskey
feels going down,
down to the balls

of your feet.
