Got it!

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. This week: we’re stuck on haikus. 


We’re going through a bit of a haiku phase around here. (Have you written one yet?) In the spirit of food thoughts condensed into seventeen syllables, our food poems this week are haikus. Digest these, and then write one for yourself. (Then share it with us!)

Like cows with their cud
we would chew constantly, and
then we’d all swallow.


If chocolate were gum

One piece would last for
hours and have few calories.
(I’m working on it.)

Salt Lick Barbeque 

Vegans, stay away,
lest your firm resolve melt from
tender smoked brisket.
