FRIEDA ROSE PLAYS WITH HER FOOD (August Postcard Poetry 2018)

She craves conversation

in the morning

at breakfast

Life all alone

makes her hungry for words

The sorcery of cereal

small bowl of Rice Krispies




So loquaciously satisfying

She experiments with liquids

beyond sordid tastes

Beer, wine

Coffee, milk

Tea, Pop

Juice, Sake

The unnatural rice cereal

responds in kind

Philosophical, romantic

Boisterous, reflective

Argumentative, silent

She has yet to try

city tap water.
