Raised lip, he looked
Like a hooked fish
Uncooked, so raw.

This one snagged me. I think I dated this guy in college. Nice image. I also don’t eat animals. This reminds of the sea creatures bound on top of a pat of rice with a seaweed strip. Nicely crafted and fun bit of words.

Haha, thanks–I can think of a lot of angry faces but one of the least attractive is the angry/disgusted/smug raised lip face. Out of curiousity, why’d you choose to go vegetarian? I can’t imagine a life without sushi!

In the ancient days of yore, I was very very poor. Animal flesh cost pounds of mine I didn’t have. Never went back.
Then there is a raft of ecological (save the planet), animal-rights (save the animals), human rights (food for the world) and health (save me from accumulated food chain toxins) reasons to continue today.
But enjoy your sushi. I’m make vege nori rolls. LOVE seaweed.
PS Keep writing those sushi-bite-sized poems. Love ‘em.

Wow, never heard of a poverty-driven vegetarian. Very cool! I don’t ever see me going completely vegetarian, but I often can go days or weeks at a time without eating it. Vege nori rolls sound delicious! And yes, I love seaweed; sometimes if I’m really desperate for a snack, I just take the seaweed paper and eat it plain. Don’t worry–I’ll often return to smaller poems just as a default from my busy schedule

Oh my gosh, a kindred! I live for sushi and coffee. Seaweed salad is one of my favorites. But oh, the salmon. Tuna. Rolls. Rolls. Rolls. Miso soup. Ginger. Mmm.

Mmm sushi is delicious. I have yet to succumb to coffee’s clutches, but I’m not going to rule out the possibility. Eel rolls are my favorite–and I love ginger! Oh man, now you’ve made me hungry!

Mmm, those last two words say it all. It’s a special gift to be able to say so very much in so few words. You are an excellent poet.

Thank you so much! You are oh so very kind

Quite an image you have forged for us … thank you for sharing!!

Thank you! I love that idea of an image being forged, like a horseshoe, the words being hammered, melted down and shaped. I’m always glad to share; it is a special blessing indeed that there are people willing to read what I’ve written

Wow, you paint a picture with your words!

Thank you! I try my best to “show, don’t tell”
