Hackers: Nigella's Poetry Book


Nigella's Poetry Book




Is poetry a recipe book from which I must make,
A dish of exact spices?
Am I only allowed a pinch of salt or thyme?
And why must I then make it rhyme?

So vulgar a food when it slips off the tongue,
Like a snake. Or snakes.
I want you to taste my food:
Chew. On. It.

And for dessert I have made a sweet haiku.
'But it is easy' you say,
'Some are more complex than some' I reply,
'Refrigerator'.
