Loved her spice rack.
It had turmeric and paprika,
Cumin and garam masala.
It had cinnamon, pepper,
Both chilli and curry powder.
It had every single kind of spice,
It was truly special and truly nice.
But it was the rack itself
Joan Cusack loved the most.
It was dark and rich and made of oak.
And in truth, she was more of a herb gal.
