Rub And Squish

Why does lemon go with fish?
Zen question.
Pluck this from here and that from there.
Squeeze it. Marinade. Fizz some ghee in a flat pan.
Green beans, shiny in steam.
Wedges cut from root vegetables crunch up, warm coloured.
Salt sweet and peppered.
Ghee melts, biscuity.
Fish from a river, fruit from a tree.
Doled out on warmed plates.
Some rub, some squish; agave, cocoa, apricot, rye with butter; there's a pudding. Sap, bean, dried fruit, grain, battered milk.

How the world looks after us.
The more we reciprocate, the more we can relax.
