Mutual Assured Delight

Polite Poetry 5


The Best Meal

Silence is a dish best left in the heart

a non-perishable delicacy that is sweet to the lips and melodious to the ears

Like a finely made pot roast that induces warm memories of home and mom

it should be cooked slowly.

How quickly we are to chew our words without tasting the tenderness of the meat.

How quickly we are to spit out our food without understanding why it tastes so delicious

Oh!

We  discard that god given recipe as if it was rotten eggs

and not a meal that activates every tactile sensation in the body.

Taste

Smell

Understand

And Hush.

In time even the most harshest food critics must bow.
