Recipe to Avoid Boredom

My second poem for Poem-a-Day (write a recipe poem) is below.

Take a full day of calendar entries
mixed with a dash
of impulsiveness, strange
calls about relatives that
have slipped out of the country
and gotten into nose-breaking
accidents, toss in a curled-up
dog at your feet along with an optional
coconut-mocha. Mix together, then bake
in an eight-hour oven at seventy-two
degrees or until the school bell
rings at which time it will all
be crumbled by homework and tween
troubles, topped with savory
hugs to make it
all better.
