After many years
In restaurants
And preparing
Countless meals

I know well
The difference
Between unappetizing
And unhealthy

A dish can look, smell
And even taste
Like a work of art

Yet still conceal
A host of toxins

And a meal
Made in a wholesome
And nutritious manner

Can appear
Quite uninteresting

So, I can only say
In hindsight

That she was very

Appealing
~wranx


In reply to "which way do we go?", the answer was never "straight", but, "progressively forward".

You are a great wordchef. so I guess it pays to be careful about what you put on your plate?

On Tuesday, I ate a chicken salad sandwich that I bought in our cafeteria. Within a few hours I was doubled over in pain! And thus came the food poisoning.

Somehow reading this eases the memory! Though we can heal from 'food' poisoning, it's harder to get over the kind of food poisoning you write about here. I enjoyed it very much.

Nodding and smiling at you, too good, just too good. hehe
