“I lay my burdens and my flowers down together 
mixing them quickly and quietly against my colander 
fixing coriander and culantro I serve for my nerves 

set under the Sirius
& this is where I’ll fix my problems
I’ll be cooking up good smells, and good trouble 
in the age of Aquarius
& quiet the problems that plague me.”– Lay It Down The Drum, Chiara Atoyebi”
