How to cook a poem

The alphabet is a shockingly
small number of ingredients
needed to make everything

from screenplays and sales orders
to subpoenas and sonnets

and I am panicked suddenly
like when I watch Iron Chef
as the twenty-six letters
sit on the table in front of me

my laptop is my kitchen knife
and at last there is nothing
left to do
in making a poem
but hack away
taste
and hope.
