    Food poems - let's eat our words (poetry game)

    Write a poem pertaining to food, food you love, food you hate, food that means something special to you, food you ate somewhere cool, food you ate off of someone cool.

    NOM NOM my favorite food in the ever ever:



    Xiao Long Bao

    In the beginning
    there was nothing -
    this was huntun.

    nothing grew lonely
    turned in on itself
    and from emptiness
    blossomed

    succulent
    hothouse meat
    encased
    in delicate shells
    that break open
    to release
    torrents.

    the first
    "ahh..."
    of satisfaction
    homecoming

    with coffee

    a drizzled honey
    revival of my body
    begs warm biscuits
    on cold winter mornings

    Eating Disorder
    Why did I have to eat the whole buffet?
    There's nothing left to try another day.
    Hard exercise might help restore my waist,
    Destroyed by buttered rolls and Texas toast.
    I almost choked, you see, devouring roast.
    What purpose did it serve to eat in haste?
    Control and common sense were at a dearth,
    As nothing on my plate was left to waste.
    I found each item tried chock-full of taste,
    Including every veggie grown on earth.
    I piled plate after plate with beef and pork,
    Determined to consume my money's worth,
    Ignoring consequences to my girth,
    Creating havoc with a knife and fork.
    I blog, therefore I am.

    my molars luxuriate
    crushing tender herb salad
    drowned in blue cheese dressing

    they say use only a tablespoon

    I am not done
    eating
    by a long
    shot

    they say eat five small meals

    next I tuck into
    the duck, weeping
    great salty tears
    I munch

    birds are my favorite avains

    sipping blood red wine
    I slurp
    burp
    then guzzle
    I am sated

    only for the next two hours
    If I'd had more time, I'd have written a shorter letter. Mark Twain

    When I Am Poor I Eat Spaghetti

    when i am poor
    i eat spaghetti --
    collecting pennies
    from parking lots
    to buy meatballs --
    spinning lengths
    of pasta
    onto a fork spool,
    cheeks and chin
    decorated
    in tomato-y sauce

    when I am rich
    I dine on
    the white flesh
    of lobster
    same chin
    dripping
    with garlic butter--
    awash in champagne
    and something
    decadently chocolate
    for pud

    Lunch today
    was damp
    honey seared chicken
    on brown rice
    diet coke
    floating a lemon slice.

    Gray

    Once I have selected the perfect vessel
    That is soothing in to the touch
    I caress it gently for a moment
    For now I have found the perfect cup

    The kettle starts to whistle
    The sound begins to caress my soul
    The water is almost ready
    For this gentle soothing cup which I do now hold

    Slowly I open the tin
    To select the tea bag that I desire
    The sent of the fresh tea
    Just lifts my spirits even higher!

    Now as the anticipation builds
    My desire begins to carry me away
    My whole being craves
    This most warming cup of gray

    As I pour the hot water
    I become lost in its swirl
    I drifted away in times winds
    Back to when I was an innocent little girl

    I was again, serving my dolls
    There cups of gray
    And my only concern
    Is how I will play away my day

    The chime of the spoon
    Brings be back through the currents of time
    As I lovingly adore this cup of gray
    That will be so divine

    Onion

    I ate you raw
    You ate me whole
    It was my insides you stole

    Every time I tasted you
    My body would recoil

    You never tried to change
    But I found out what could

    I tossed you in the fire
    And stripped you of your soul

    grainy crunch of corn
    washed down in rivulets
    of icy bubbling cola
    salt-oil residue
    on fingertips
    and tongue
    and lips

    kiss me clean



    [plagiarized my own post from a different game but it fits here so well ]

    Snowflake Pancakes

    Beautiful cakes fresh off a hot griddle
    With consistent texture edge-to-middle
    And a golden cast of just the right shade --
    Yes, some people say they're easily made.

    The 'snowflake' flapjacks I normally cook
    Cannot be found in a recipe book.
    Jumbo or dollar-size, they sometimes bake
    Up thin as a crepe or thicker than steak.

    Delicate or heavy and dark or light,
    The results present no uniform sight.
    And so my pancakes get their 'snowflake' name;
    No two of mine ever turn out the same.
    "Physically conservative and socially literal."

    How boring
    to be
    a Chinese saint

    high in the mountains
    breathing in mist
    and ether
    for sustenance.

    Even those
    on Mount Olympus
    must get sick
    of the same
    damned Ambrosia
    salads, cupcakes,
    and loafs
    every day of eternity.

    Longingly
    they watch me eat
    my melting
    Philly cheese steaks
    and egg rolls bathed
    in black vineagar.

    Talking Almond Mounds!

    Hills of chocolate Joy,
    coconuts freshly picked
    blend it all together
    and tell me what you get
    Almond Joy! Almond Mound!
    This is the best junkfood
    that I've ever found!
    This may be a chant
    or a cheer as it sounds
    but I just came to tell
    of my Joy for Almond Mound!

    Completely random just thought I'd introduce myself to the Cooler

    ahem ahem. FOOD POEMS ONLY PLOX. J/K.


    Picked up
    Pick up Stix
    MSG Salty Chinese Food.

    morass of sauce
    week old shrimp
    oil drenched wontons.

    This after
    my optometrist
    threatened me
    with blindness
    for keeping contacts
    in so long

    and after
    the waiter
    with falsely jovial
    attitude, irritated me
    to deep fried angry extremes.

    I ate it and didn't taste it.

    I asked you
    if you wanted an omlette

    your face
    was so disappointed
    when you realized I meant
    to microwave

    that I wished
    I had cracked three
    sunshine eggs
    watched it flood
    the cast-iron pan
    added a pinch of salt
    and three slices
    of Tillamook cheese

    and gently, baby-ishly
    tucked it together.

    The microwave beeps,
    and I wish I still had
    the tenderness required
    for omlettes

    My cat is easy prey,
    distract him
    with catnip on a string
    and it's just a matter
    of catching,
    skinning,
    and stir frying
    with bell peppers,
    ginger, and a squirt
    of soy sauce.

    Preparation
    for a famine is why
    I've kept him around
    so long.

    How I adore thee
    ballpark frank
    microwaved
    for two minutes fifty
    until I hear you squealing high whiiiiine
    as your skin casing bursts
    and out spills juices
    heavenly scent.

    I'll cover you in ketchup
    darling
    I'll smother you with love
    baby
    I'll send you packing
    sweetness
    through my clomping chompers
    down my eager gullet
    while I watch old-fashioned TV
    on the couch while Jake eats Salisbury steak

    but wait.

    The couch is sold
    and Jake's still in the states
    and if I want a ballpark frank
    I've got to go all the way downtown
    to the foreigner supermarket
    where I might be able to get Jenni-O
    for ten bucks a pack.
