Savering Savory

Slight tug releases garlic

Clove from cluster

Clothed, disheveled

In brittle papery leaves.

White translucent skin

Peels away, clings

Static-like, to fingertips.

Smooth ivory clove freed

Knife slices, wet-crunching

Imperfect oval slivers

Cutting board tumble

Deft cross-cutting

Minces sticky particles

Pungent aroma coats fingertips.

Skillet heats olive oil

Radiates rich, nutty scent

Salt-fruity aura pervades kitchen.

Garlic, oil-baptized, sautes


Signals dinner en route

Summons senses to high alert


Savering process

Anticipated concoction
