OctPoWriMo Day 21 – taste

the memory of eating with my hand
the first meal that I cooked – that was so grand

of fish and I have to take the bones off
when I first tasted wheat beer, a good quaff

when the son first cooked, that wasn’t planned
then I cooked something with cream, it was bland

he cooked a mean curry and boy, I coughed
and sometimes, Houston we have a lift-off

bacon and ham sandwich, the lot we troughed
Him Indoors’ repertoire, that’s so show-off

The taste of metal

When I had braces at ten
Hard to speak, felt awkward

My wedding ring didn’t fit anymore
Since I was pregnant with HRH the son
I put it in the chain close to my heart

The taste of metal

Under the moon, we dance
The stars around us twinkle

Ice from the sky
Dents in our car

When I bit my tongue
Someone’s talking about me
Shadows following me*
