Poetics Aside November Challenge – Day 13
Write a letter
Write a recipe

Dear Ms. Erable,

I was distressed to learn that your recipe attempt
did not go well. However, in looking over the
ingredients and the order in which they were
blended together, I did find some errors which
may be causing your final product to fail.

To begin, you left out compassion which is a
vital ingredient for success. In placing sexual
fulfillment first, you have neglected the art
of conversation and communication. Sense
of humor was used correctly, as well as love.

I suggest you give this recipe a second chance
and please do let me know the outcome.

Yours truly,

Mr. Wright
