Sideboards

How do you
unclutter a fridge?
You make hearty soup
one of those
“throw in all the left-overs
and hope the flavours blend” – she planned to make
soup for two,
but as she threw in
potatoes,
carrots, peas, beans, turnips,
left-over soup mix – it soon was apparent
it needed to be
in a pot with sideboards

let’s call the neighbours
they appreciate soup
especially when it’s full
of surprises.
