Grandmother slaps dough 
onto the cutting board, rolling

it over once more. Recipea memory
performed in motion: fleshed veins

when she flattens, angle of hers arms,
arch of her hunchback. 

The flour spreads like pollen. Rolls 
sliced and stuffed and staggered

while the oven goes off, and the final batch
goes in. This is morning: the counting down 

as flour and dough lines her palm and the scent
of cooked beef escaping from the oven cracks.
