shrimp lasagna

cut the tofu
peel the shrimp
wash the tomatoes
don’t clog the sink

ten pasta sheets
grate the cheese
bring the pepper mill
defrost the peas

grease the casserole
400 degrees
35 minutes
time for you and me

to dance around the fridge
kiss beneath the hood
make love on the table
till the timer goes off
make love on the table
till the timer goes off

fork and knife
prewarm the plates
a bottle of wine
sweetens the wait

while we dance around the fridge
kiss beneath the hood
make love on the table
till the timer goes off
make love on the table
till the timer goes off
