Alphabet Soup

by Chris Sorrenti

Stir all twenty-six
on the tip of your
mind’s eye spoon
simmering for
the right combination
wishing some way
they'll arrange themselves
though how long it takes
is never a certainty

Take a break
or it’ll drive you crazy
return another day
much as always
to your surprise
you’ll find the words floating
complete sentences
in your bowl
as if they had always been there
