#NaPoWriMo Day 6

Today’s prompt from napowrimo.net is a poem about food. It could be inspired by a particular food, or about a food related incident, or describing your relationship with food… plenty of scope to play here 🙂

The lexicon of food is rich with verbs for various cooking methods (simmering, boiling, chopping); descriptions of colour, smell, and taste; metaphors ripe for the taking (- I couldn’t resist 😛 -). But today I wanted my poem to be about something a little less pleasant and a little closer to home. Here goes via haiku:
