Human Beans

13 Nov
A countdown timer is essential 
when pressure cooking 
dry black beans. 
After reaching full pressure, 
time twenty-four minutes until the buzzer
& the legumes are now soft.
Use twenty minutes & they're chewy raw; 
push it to thirty; you got mush. Cooking is
a bounded & timed process to get it right.
True also of all organics
who are against
a deadline.
