27. a poem that includes at least three
different flavous and two different odours
Garlic - blood-cleansing reminder -
in melting butter: burnt grass odour
the smell enters body, skin, seeps
into it and, if massaged, emerges
intact - real garlic, healing, invasive.
They boil organic fusilli, add tuna
and Greek antipasto - olives, feta,
capsicum, herbs, garlic, its oil.
Their tongues emerge from oiled
places, lick, trap last sticky bits.
