Faint Braise

the sear is first
whip crack pop and snap
moisture sublimated
passing go its released
expansive
tiny droplets singe the air
purged muscles shrink
elastic bands tighten
compress
fugitive droplets run
are obliterated
the exterior seizes,
begins to char
cling to its tormentor
victorious smoke
curls
leering skyward

Another hiss
greater this time
armageddon loud
tiny handholds swept away in an instant
released in violent ecstatic inevitability
silence

Temperatures climb
particles again become excited
begin to jostle frantically
expand
bubbles form
tiny
slow,
thick
bursting indolently

The first down are the walls
swelling
the heat sabotages them
crumbling
their hostages stream through
threaten
a show of force contained

The connective tissues are next
thickening
spreading
defeated
spilling and sliding
their defeat coats,
separates
loses shape
defines

Finally the fat begin to render
waxy globules liquefying
reluctant,
oozing
now powerful
reactive
pervasive

Moments of rest
before speared
fat lips reach out
open
grasp clumsily
pulled
then crushed
masticated

They will praise the mouthfeel
so tender
such a lovely fond
well developed

You were raised for this
low
slow
the meat will fall of the bone.
