roux’d

the secret
to anything
worthwhile
is putting in
the time
like making
a proper roux
you have to
dedicate
an hour of
constant motion
golden butter
ivory flour
stirring them
in a low
medium frenzy
until a deep
chocolate
percolates
to create a
pot of
perfect gumbo
the smallest
things make
the biggest
differences
even if you’re
likely to
burn yourself
before you
get there
