Tossed Salad

by Chris Sorrenti

I could go for a ripe red tomato
splattered nice and juicy
all over your shirt or blouse
how ‘bout a cucumber shoved up your nose?
leaves of lettuce pushing
between those dirty little toes
as you march in unison
through a country garden

I’d like to tie you to the nearest tree
drop French dressing in both your eyes
is that a clove of garlic growing in your ear?
then Magnifique! All the better

No! - who needs beef or poultry?
strips of bacon fried
I'll see you at the seal hunt protest
then it’s off for fish n’ chipies
cause we got no sympathy
for the haddock’s
scales ripped off
floundering in the fisherman's nasty

Chris, I enjoyed this food fight or food fling. Loved the food in various body parts. "Magnifique" is a nice touch. Good to read you again.
