William Carlos Williams - To Waken An Old Lady

Old age is
a flight of small
cheeping birds
bare trees
above a snow glaze.
Gaining and failing
they are buffeted
by a dark wind—
But what?
On harsh weedstalks
the flock has rested—
the snow
is covered with broken
seed husks
and the wind tempered
with a shrill
piping of plenty.

You can also do a whole smoked pork sehdluor (it already comes vacuum packed in food grade plastic at the supermarket) in the instant pot for 24 hours at 65C.
