tonight i made tamale pie (so long a good bye)

the house still smells of cumin i stood at stove and wondered should i add an extra teaspoon tamale pie a favorite from a life time long since gone yesterday, i longed for scents and texture of creamed corn mingling with chunky salsa and a dash of chili powder and found myself wondering if ground chicken would work…
