Food Poems

A Haiku or Two, on Warmth

October  4, 2014

Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 


Shop the Story

i do not care that
you hate the noises i make
while slurping hot tea

oh! a hot toddy
forgot about you during
spritz season. i'm sorry.


All I want is to
Crawl inside a burrito
And make a home there.

It'd feel good to be 
carried in a baby bjorn,
wrapped in lots of fleece.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

cupping tamales,
still steaming in their husks, in
my hands to keep warm

pardon me whilst i
stick my face into this pot
of hot mulled cider

Chiles in farm box
Make me a little nervous;
Can't take too much heat!

Apples everywhere -
Table, oven, counter, cake,
Warm spice in my mouth.

Sunshine on my back,
October in the islands.
Thanks, I'll take that beer.

(From the San Francisco Bay Area):

It’s so hot here now.
But with post-season baseball,
I guess that’s okay.

For my fellow Bay Area-ite:

the giants are done
soon earthquake- and fire- weather
will be done as well

whoopsies i was wrong
the giants are still in it
go, orange and black!
