When Stirring Oatmeal

When stirring oatmeal,

just stir the oatmeal.

Feel the wooden spoon in your hand.

Feel it make contact with the pan.

Watch the bubbles as they appear.

Listen to their gentle pop.

Notice the smell of milk and oats.

Feel your mouth grow damp.

Know that satisfaction began

before the oatmeal left the pan.
