Pepperoni Pizza, Hamburger, Rasberry Cream Cheese Bread

I had missed you, Stevenson Dining Hall,
thick cranberry-cocktail syrup electrocharging my veins,
pastry slabs stacked like bricks,
cooling pepperoni and congealed cheese by the thin mouthful,
teeth closing down
on processed animal flesh

Baked Pretzel with Nutritional Yeast Sauce, Apple Crisp and White Bean/Carrot Stew

with 2 comments

 

The physiology of angels is such: the great majority of angels have one wing, and this wing is near their hearts. There is only one feather in this wing. Many angels have two-feathered wings. Each feather spins endlessly. Some angels have greater wings, of many feathers, farther and farther away from their hearts, and though no wing can have more than eight spinning feathers in it, an angel may have any number of wings.

Humans were made to contemplate the angels, and to move them about. When humans put the angels of pretzels together with the angels of Nutritional Yeast Sauce, it is then that even God laughs, and shakes his head and says “What a Thursday.”

Co-op Lunch (Tofu)

with one comment

“Like the origins of cheese and butter, the exact origin of tofu production may never be known or proven.” -Wikipedia

 

O Nameless Tofu Originator

you are more immortal than any of us are going to be.

Were you a prehistorical genius, experimenting rigorously over many years?

(different combinations of bean curd, salt, etcetera).

Or was it blind luck?

like the Chinese emperor who was boiling water outside, only to have a leaf fall in it

and invent tea. Perhaps I should stay home all day

mixing, stirring.

“Hottest Dog”

with 2 comments

O Hottest Dog,
we are not so different, you and I.

If one wished to get into my wallet, one should know that the way is puns.
Even not very good puns.

I purchased you because it seemed like a good story.
Sort of an investment in the future.

In response to some conversational opening, I could flippantly remark,
“Ah, yes, I have eaten the Hottest Dog.”

“Hot? It was pretty hot. I don’t know about Hottest.
What glorious days shall come to pass.

Wind’s a bit chilly here, Hottest Dog.
Come on, let’s add our warmths together.

I do not like banana peppers.
But that will be okay.

Lorenzo’s 12” Gluten-Free Pizza w/Anchovies

with 2 comments

Long had I romanticized the anchovy – imagined

five-and-dime store secrets, the dusty wisdom of tinned foods

would be waiting for me –

 

I lusted after it on menus.

After all I enjoyed eel, which turned my family’s stomachs,

though I always laughed.

Strange foods were a joyous rebellion.

I thought I was a virtuoso.

 

 

But it really does taste like that.

Domino’s Small Pizza w/Extra Toppings

with one comment

This one actually took place last month.

———-

O Delivery Pizza of Depravity

thy transgressions are many – Mushroom, Bacon, Extra Cheddar.

You were born into sin, but your redemption

is delicious.

Soy-Sauce Rice and Broccoli In An Enormous Wok

with one comment

A list of events:
1. You were a dinosaur.

2. We picked your flesh off with spoons.

3. And sat by the campfire.

4. The wind was needles on the roof.

5. I scrubbed your hide with salt & vinegar.
