Low Rider- War
Have you ever seen how brussels sprouts grow? They are so beautiful! I recently came across this field of them not too far from us, in Half Moon Bay, where there is so much gorgeous farmland on the sea. It inspired me to come home and make an oldie but goodie, Roasted Brussels Sprouts with golden raisins and turkey kielbasa. Swap out the kielbasa for tofu sausage or onions if you’d like a veggie version of this. You can also just as easily use a cookie sheet. Use olive oil generously and keep that oven high to ensure crispy bits on the edges of the sprouts (the best part!).

I think we all speak a different kind of language
than each other, but you sound a whole lot like coffee on a
Sunday morning and the rain is falling bitter against the windowpane
and your elbows are making holes in the countertops, and
I only want to tell you that I wish I was as close as the threads of your
t-shirt, and if I can’t be that, then I’ll be content with
drinking my drink beside you, with the rain sloppy open mouth kissing
the roof, trying to dismantle the etymology of a conversation
that falls out of the realm of words.
