Just Desserts

Our friend Misky is guest-hosting today’s dVerse Poets Pub Tuesday Poetics Challenge: to write about food. Although the Biblical tale of Eden’s Apple my not (technically speaking) be about just food, I’m hoping that this sequence of senryu/inverted senryu meets expectations…


Just Desserts

not because he was hungry
he took the apple
when she handed it to him

she was a hottie
how could he have turned her down
naked as she was

now they were homeless
and their landlord was pissed off
but they didn’t care

second best is good enough
they’re done with Eden
and feasting on apple pie
