In the words of Hafiz, “You carry / All the ingredients / To turn your life into a nightmare– / Don’t mix them! / You have all the genius / To build a swing in your backyard / For God. / That sounds / Like a hell of a lot more fun. / […] / You carry all the ingredients / To turn our existence into joy, / Mix them, mix them!”

I also needed to say goodbye to my favorite foods. Here is my going away dinner.
