Here we are, at last. The final day. I have loved having part of this month be posting poems I thought you’d enjoy. The final prompt asked us to: Visit your local restaurant, bar or coffee shop and snag a copy of the menu. Write a poem using only words and phrases found on the menu.
This, as with any source, depends on text to be workable. I was lucky. I chose a Japanese menu. The restaurant must make a hundred rolls and they name every single one of them. In fact, I had too many words. The first things I did was delete words I knew I wasn’t going to use, so the list was not so intimidating. I like what I finally arrived at: Life is a Japanese Menu.
Other items on the menu (I went nuts today, because it’s the final one):
Barbara C: Please ask
Richard Walker: aromas!
Massimo Soranzio: Buried within
Misky: Filling and Earl Grey at Pret
Kimmy Stühle: Angels on the Moon
Gary Glauber: The Western Chinese Amigo’s Umbrella
Zann Carter:Live–Often and Well
Andrea Janelle Dickens: Émigré Memories
Lori Brack: gypsy midnight
Okay, I’m stopping. The relatives are on their way from the airport, so I guess I should cast my eye over the flat. The dusting… ah, well. Enjoy these. I hope to, a couple of times next month, post links to some more that I come across as I go back through and read without a deadline.
I will see you Tuesday for my regular prompt; Thursday for links and such; and Friday for the prompt roundup.
