The diet

She stands shoulders slumped hands poised over the stove, her mind is far away.

One table spoon of this , a pinch of that ,the ingredients are not unfamiliar, she’s made this meal a hundred times.

The food is good , she thinks,  it is a meal she had enjoyed many times before.

Today though, today she will not know, she cannot, she is cooking for the ones that can know.

It is a hard task I think for a woman on a diet to cook for a husband and child who is not.
