Every Friday, we’re mixing things up with a different kind of food writing. More specifically, food poetry to be read slowly, over your morning coffee. Today, a little fun with meter and marshmallow-toasting.

Do you have your camping essentials yet? No? We’ll wait. 

When you do, gather them up and head out to make a fire -- fall breezes like these are made for huddling around a campfire, blankets at the ready and hot tea in hand. We’d be remiss if we didn’t remind you to bring s’mores fixings, though, so today, we have a poem for you that’ll do just that. 

Read this and tell us, what’s your roasting style?

I roast marshmallow both ways. The first 2 are carefully turned and browned to perfection then I char the outside of the next 2 slipping off the outer bit and eating it before charring the next layer.

So methodical. I think I always try for the careful roast, but it (almost ALWAYS) leads to some kind of marshmallow fireball, in the end.
