Fighting With Food

Must I fight with food
My desire only to savor cooked
Why must I fight with food
Meat fried so hard the fork’s afraid
Some of Frances' favorite fruits
Knowing it cannot pierce outer layer
Fish fried dry to the bone
The oil feels so cheated
Demands its vanished self back
Noodle so tasteless
The dog spews all out in anger
The coffee so terrible
The mug jumps away fast
Refusing to be poured into it
Why must I fight with food
Potato salad so horrible
The bowl flips over the edge
Choosing to break itself instead
Why must I fight with food
I choose to avoid cooked hereon
I choose to eat raw vegetables
I choose to eat fruits, not drink them
No one can bungle raw

--My dream has loved paper so much for so long because it gave influence to the parched voice of a fashionista poet. Finding this outlet, that voice is now replete with expressive sound.
