Gone Fishin’

Casting a line is a simple act, an opportunity to reflect and practice patience. The cliche of Covid disrupting the predictable rhythms of life left everyone trying to construct form from chaos and doing their best to wrangle spiraling thoughts. Chef Kevin Cowens returned to a form that has served him well over the years - finding peace in the waves of rocking vessels and condensing thoughts into simple prose.

Feeling disconnected

From everything

I've known

Welcomed relief

Known to embrace

Being on my own

It's hard

To know

If anything

Means anything

I've tried

So hard

To forget

What that

Feels like

Me and you

You and me

Nothing else

I can see

Let's just be

Me and you

You and me
