Taste Quotes

Hungry coming back from work
Make something easy
Carbonara with meatballs
Such accomplishment
Making it from scratch
Delightful
Food!*

Chicken or pork adobo
My favourite dish
Marinate in vinegar
Garlic and soy sauce
Serve with rice and wine
Delicious
Great!*

We taste every word twice

Fight or flight, sure, doubt

Right with all the spice

Know what it’s about

Fight or flight, sure, doubt

Assault of the senses

Risky to ask out

Crisis over fences

Right with all the spice

Strip of meaning

Power of being nice

To die of dreaming

Know what it’s about

Casting shadows of truth

Rushing to that rout

On board of this is Ruth**

the memory of eating with my hand
of fish and I have to take the bones off
when I first tasted wheat beer, a good quaff
the first meal that I cooked – that was so grand

when the son first cooked, that wasn’t planned
he cooked a mean curry and boy, I coughed
the memory of eating with my hand
of fish and I have to take the bones off

when I cooked something with cream, it was bland
bacon and ham sandwich, the lot we troughed
and sometimes, Houston we have a lift-off
but we always go back to where we land
the memory of eating with my hand***

***Rondel – a French form consisting of 13 lines: two quatrains and a quintet, rhyming as follows: ABba abAB abbaA. The capital letters are the refrains, or repeats.

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****
