Vegetables in a Tray
A courgette, an aubergine, an onion, a ripe tomato…then some thyme and basil.
Rub the herbs in your hands. Inhale.
Let the aroma inspire you. Let go to an unreflective desire and create.
Slice, trickle a thin stream of good olive oil, season to taste.
Use your rubbed-herbed flavored hands like two big spoons.
Toss and turn.
Line them in a tray, nice and neat.
Seven, eight, lay them straight.
Make good food. Eat good food.
It always works well this way.
