how to make guacamole (20161224)

mash the avocado with a fork
leave some chunks
add lemon juice, salt, garlic
chili to your tolerance

slice an onion in half
while it still lives
in its skin

press your thumb
into a layer below
the dried outer paper

feel the layers separate
your thumb a medium
a wedge dividing
the outside from the inside
you don’t have to remove the skin
yet
just feel that moment
caught between together
and apart

every word
a wedge finding its way
between my layers
each word a manicured thumb
breaking me apart
but leaving me intact

mince well
serve with homemade
chips
