The Jars In My Kitchen

I put conventional wisdom
right next to the flour,
sitting neatly on my
kitchen counter. The latter
is rarely used because I
plan my meals on a whim,
depending on what I feel
and how few ingredients
I can get away with while still
making something delicious.

I treat the conventional axioms
in similar fashion, trying not to
spend too much time following
tried and true, but rather scanning
my landscape until something
catches my eye,
deciphering it,
discarding unnecessary fluff,
and finally mapping out my own truths.

So why my jars
stay full and unused;
I've learned sometimes the best meals
are like unplanned road trips,
make it up as you go along.
