Cacio e Pepe Polenta

What if we wonder, Does it come easily? and not in the way that inaction might, or giving up, or remaining uninvolved [because all of those may be the more complicated option at some point, depending on the circumstances] Instead, does it come easily? as in, Does it come out of you like breath, returning…
