Prompt 9 Popcorn

Popcorn 🍿

was it the first thing I cooked all alone

I poured it in hot oil

in the big cast iron pot

The pot for big meals

I slide the cover on

sealing it tight and waited

It started out slow

then the noise began

pop pop pop pop pop

as the kernels violently hit the lid

should I run for cover

a bit of steam escapes

suddenly everything slows

everything stops

and I know

I felt big

I felt fulfilled

I had made my own snack at maybe six or seven
