Food poetry: Chinese takeout

July imageI should have taken a picture before we finished all the takeout, but alas! Thank goodness I have this coloring page to give you something nice to look at.

After dinner

we are the fortunate
cookies, we who were flat
but now curl
moonlike around thick
middles, cradling happy
advice and lucky numbers
in our crisp bellies

  1. We are the fortunate cookies – I love that line, and the rest as well. Great poetry, Jennifer. You made me laugh with my whole middle. Blessings to you…
